The chief also said Syria has agreed to let inspectors into the country this month to probe allegations of illegal nuclear activity.

Israel stroke the site in an air raid last September.

Washington handed over "intelligence" to the International Atomic Energy Agency in April for verification purposes.

Syria has denied US, Israel claims.

"It has now been agreed that an agency team will visit Syria during the period 22-24 of June. I look forward to Syria's full cooperation in this matter," IAEA Director Mohamed ElBaradei told a meeting of the agency's 35-nation board of governors.
