Foreign Ministry sources said Saturday that North Korea was transferring equipment and technology to Iran that can be used to produce missiles, Israel Radio reported.
Israel welcomed the UN Security Council's decision Saturday to impose sanctions on North Korea
Senior officials in Jerusalem said that Israel saw the decision as a "step in the right direction" in the effort to prevent nuclear weapons proliferation.
North Korea has completed a series of missile launches that some analysts believe was meant to test a nuclear command and control system for Iran.
Western intelligence analysts said the North Korean missile launches on July 4 and 5 did not seem connected to Pyongyang's ballistic missile program. The analysts pointed to the aborted flight of the Taepo Dong-2, meant to have a range of up to 5,000 kilometers.
Instead, the North Korean launch of seven missiles appeared designed to demonstrate a command and control system. The analysts pointed to the presence of at least 11 senior Iranian engineers at the launch pad at Taepo Dong. "The development of Taepo Dong-2 is conducted jointly with Iran, and it is possible China's technology is used in the development of the Taepo Dong-2 engine," South Korea's Institute of Foreign Affairs and National Security said.

I suppose the bright side to this is the fact the N. Koreans haven't had much success with their testing on missiles or nukes to this point.
iranians must be pissed if they advanced cash on nuclear fizzle. good news though, the byproduct probably fizzzled iranian bellicose rhetoric.
The NK/Iran nuclear connection fits with the NK/Iran/Libyan connection exposed in 2003, when Libya folded its nuclear tent, revealing an underground complex beneath a mountain that housed nuclear facilities manned by Iranian/NK/Libyan (and Iraqi, I believe) scientists and engineers.
