In 2009 little progress was made in resolving the outstanding issues arising from the IAEA’s investigation of a suspected undeclared nuclear facility located at al-Kibar, in eastern Syria. The site was destroyed by an Israeli air strike in September 2007.77 The Israeli and US governments have alleged that Syria had been secretly constructing, with technical assistance from North Korea, a nuclear reactor said to be similar to the reactor that North Korea used to produce plutonium for a nuclear explosive device.78 The Syrian Government has stated that the destroyed building was a disused military facility that had no connection to nuclear activities.79
