“The agency believes that the facility in Deir Ez-Zor destroyed in 2007 was a nuclear reactor,” said Yukiya Amano, “and Damascus has to report details about it based on the guarantees deal.”

Amano made his comments during a meeting at the IAEA headquarters in Vienna. “I renew my call for Syria to cooperate fully regarding all outstanding issues related to Deir Ez-Zor and other places.”

He added that the Syrian authorities have to reply to these calls.
