June 19, 2008

TEHRAN - The head of the United Nations atomic watchdog has said he would offer his resignation if the major powers make serious threats against Iran over its nuclear program.

“A military invasion against Iran would pose great danger to the Middle East and the world,” Mohamed ElBaradei told Dubai-based television station Al Arabiya aired on Tuesday.
Turning to Syria, the International Atomic Energy Agency director general said there is no evidence Syria has the skilled personnel or the fuel to operate a large-scale nuclear facility.
“We have no evidence that Syria has the human resources that would allow it to carry out a large nuclear program. We do not see Syria having nuclear fuel,” Reuters quoted ElBaradei as saying
