Syria has promised to cooperate with a UN nuclear inquiry into a suspected reactor site bombed by Israel in 2007, an apparent last-minute bid by Damascus to derail a Western push to report it to the UN Security Council.

Syria has promised to cooperate with a UN nuclear inquiry into a suspected reactor site bombed by Israel in 2007, an apparent last-minute bid by Damascus to derail a Western push to report it to the UN Security Council.

Western diplomats made clear they saw it as a tactical move ahead of a board meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency, which was expected to condemn Syrian stonewalling of the IAEA probe into desert site known as Dair Alzour.
