Was Iran involved in the North Korean nuclear test? Analysts told the Jerusalem Post it’s a good bet:

Iran nuke“The most disturbing question is whether the Iranians are using North Korea as a backdoor plan for their own nuclear program. The Iranians didn’t carry out a nuclear test in Iran, but they may have done so in North Korea,” Levkowitz said. “There is no official information on this… but Iran may have bypassed inspections via North Korea. If true, this is a very worrying development.”

  1. Iran’s top nuke scientist, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh Mahabadi, was reportedly present for North Korea’s nuclear test. The Sunday Times writes:

    He is in charge of developing a warhead small enough to fit on to one of the ballistic missiles developed by Iran from North Korean prototypes, the sources said. His trip may have been worth the risk because North Korea’s triumphant announcement of the blast hinted that it was a compact, powerful device . . .

    Fakhrizadeh-Mahabadi has been identified as a “person involved in nuclear or ballistic missile activities” in UN security council documents and his assets are supposedly frozen.

    While we’re on the subject of Iran and North Korea being best buddies, AP notes reports that North Korea appears to be upgrading one of its rocket launching sites with Iranian help.
