Hidden agenda here maybe. Strange that Iran, supposedly working towards a nuclear warhead (denied by them of course) is now cosying up to the only nuclear power in the world that may help them. North Korea, of course, has the rocket technology to help Iran launch a nuclear warhead. Two pariah states together, watch out the rest of the world (including China and Russia).
