IAEA chief asks Israel to join nuclear NPT

The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency asked Israel to consider signing up to the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, according to a report released Friday.
A report by the Vienna-based watchdog  said agency chief Yukiya Amano "invited Israel to consider to accede" to the treaty during a low-key visit last month.
The report also contained a July 26 letter from Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman that pointed the finger at Iran and Syria as the Middle East's "real proliferation challenges."
