Iranian Agents On Hand at North Korean Satellite Launch

Iranian agents were reportedly at the launch site this week in North Korea for the satellite launch.

The rocket was similar to one that could carry a nuclear warhead.

The Times of Israel reported:

Iranian agents are reportedly on the site of a planned North Korean long-range rocket launch, widely believed to be a cover up for a banned missile test.

Pyongyang is planning on launching the rocket, which it claims is part of the country’s fledgling space program, sometime between December 10 and 22. However, reports now indicate that the launch will be delayed by a few days.

The Iranian agents are offering technical assistance on the launch, South Korea’s Chosun Imbo newspaper reported Monday. The experts are from Iran’s Shahid Hemmat Industrial Group, which developed the Shahab-3 intercontinental ballistic missile, the paper said, citing an unnamed Seoul official.

“Identifiable cars have been spotted traveling back and forth from the quarters to the missile launch site,” the government source was quoted by the paper as saying. “We believe they’re carrying Iranian experts.”
