British authorities suspect that North Korea had outside help to achieve the current progress in nuclear and missile programs.
The Telegraph reports, citing government sources, that the British foreign office is conducting an investigation on foreign assistance that could get the DPRK in the implementation of its nuclear and missile programs. London made the list of “suspects”, which is headed by Iran, and which includes also Russia. It is worth noting that ten years ago, the media reported that the DPRK is helping Iran conduct an underground nuclear test.
Higher Whitehall officials claim that scientists of the DPRK “did not act in a vacuum” could alone ensure the success of the programs in North Korea. In London fear that the DPRK is very close to becoming a nuclear country.
