Iranian scientists may attend N. Korea nuclear test
Gee, I wonder what the Iranians are doing there?
North Korea will soon carry out a nuclear experiment, and Iranian scientists could be present at the explosion site, sources who are familiar with the issue told The Jerusalem Post Monday.
Iranian officials from the Shahid Hemmat Industrial Group observed a failed North Korean rocket launch on April 13, according to a report by the South Korean Yonhap news agency.
Although Seoul has neither confirmed nor denied the report, it believes that a delegation of a dozen Iranian scientists may have been technically involved in North Korea’s failed long-range rocket launch, which North Korea said was a satellite launch.
Now, the Islamic Republic may be planning a presence at North Korea’s upcoming third nuclear test as well.
South Korea government sources said on Sunday that North Korea appears
to have completed preparations for the test, and would need only to push a button to detonate an atomic bomb.
The test could come as soon as early to middle May.
