    International Atomic Energy Agency Recognizes Palestine as a State


    Tobaposcom -- The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) signed an agreement to recognize Palestine, as a state as it joined the international body as a observer on Tuesday. While it is not a member, it can attend meetings as an observer, an IAEA spokesperson said. (more)

    The agreement, which was signed by the agency's director general Yukiya Amano and the Palestinian Ambassador in Vienna Salah Abdul Shafi, gives the IAEA inspectors the ability to check the safety of radioactive materials and fissile nuclear materials, such as uranium.

    While the PA has no nuclear reactors, it does have physics departments in hospitals and universities, which have medical equipment containing components of nuclear materials.

    Furthermore, Israel has never signed the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, an international treaty including most of the world, which has the goal of preventing the spread of nuclear weapons. While Israel does not say that it has nuclear weapons, it does not deny it possess them either. Thus, Israel only allows the IAEA to visit designated areas with supervision. It is widely speculated that Israel has a nuclear facility outside the southern city of Dimona. This reactor is off limits to the IAEA inspection and, according to foreign reports, Israel produces fissile materials there - highly enriched uranium and plutonium - for nuclear weapons. (adm)
