IRAN – Russia has for the first time acknowledged the nuclear threat posed by North Korea and Iran. During a televised interview with Russia Today on Tuesday, the country’s Army General Nikolai Makarov said that according to a joint analysis conducted with the U.S., there is a “probability that the threat exists.” The general added that Russia agreed on the need to create a missile defense system. Previously, the Russian Defense Ministry has said that there is no nuclear threat from Pyeongyang or Tehran since they don’t have the capacity to build or deliver nuclear weapons. His remarks followed various foreign media reports indicating that North Korea has completed the preparations for a third nuclear test. –Arirang
