Hello Guido, At this stage it may not have been illegal (although I am not sure; I think they have 6 months to report), but the intent was clearly illegal. The builders were North Korean, and their design uses non-enriched Uranium. This is a big no-no for proliferation, so once the Syrians admit, it will be recorded forever as an attempt at cheating the IAEA. The result would be that the Security Council may cause them trouble in the future. Example: Iran has a legal right to do all the work they are now doing, including enrichment (at a low level). They are subject to sanctions because they cheated in the past and are suspect of trying to ultimately build a capacity to produce weapons.
