South Korea’s official news agency reported Monday that 12 Iranians who are involved in Tehran’s ballistic missile program were present in North Korea last week during the failed launching of a missile that was meant to deliver a satellite into space.
According to the report, which was also mentioned by the British Daily Telegraph newspaper, the guests were from the Shahid Hemmat Industrial Group, which is subject to international sanctions.
A diplomatic source quoted by the news agency said that “the Iranians undoubtedly were there to observe the missile launch and receive test data from North Korea.”
