Seen from the United States or Europe, Iran’s nuclear program often causes most concern, but from the perspective of countries in the Asia-Pacific region, the North Korean program is equally worrying.
The Iran nuclear issue is on top of the agenda. It is a very complicated issue with long history.
Satellite images suggest North Korea is building a light-water reactor and working on uranium enrichment. This is troubling.
