     Japanese daily Sankei Shimbun reports that 7 Iranian officials from the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran and the Revolutionary Guards were observers during North Korea’s missile and nuclear tests conducted in April and May, respectively. According to an unnamed source, the Iranian officials also watched a North Korean patrol ship enter South Korean waters in early June, possibly to explore methods of infiltrating enemy ships, and met with senior North Korean officials to discuss strategies for negotiating with the US and other foreign powers. The Iranian embassy in Tokyo denies any technical cooperation on missile or nuclear technologies between Iran and North Korea.
