UN watchdog rejects oversight of Israel’s nuclear program

The UN’s nuclear watchdog rejects an Arab resolution calling for international oversight of Israel’s nuclear program.

The 61-43 vote in Israel’s favor in the International Atomic Energy Agency’s General Conference Thursday is a rare instance of support for Israel in the world of UN bodies and international organizations. Thirty-three states abstained.

Egypt, Israel’s erstwhile ally against shared jihadist enemies in Gaza and Sinai, led the campaign against Israel’s nuclear program, the Haaretz daily reports.

A similar resolution also failed to pass the IAEA General Conference in 2014.
