Al-Monitor: Trump's Dealings With NKorea Will Affect Iran Nuke Hopes

By    |   Monday, 30 January 2017 09:05 PM

President Donald Trump's ability to effectively deal with North Korea and its nuclear program will be a major factor in preventing Iran from developing nuclear weapons, according to the website Al-Monitor.

The site quoted multiple Israeli officials, speaking anonymously, as saying the world will be watching how Trump deals with the government of leader Kim Jong Un to see whether Iran will be able to develop a nuclear arsenal.

"If Trump succeeds in stopping North Korea, it would be reasonable to assume that the Iranians will get the hint," Al-Monitor quoted their source. "On the other hand, if Trump repeats the Obama administration's failures in handling North Korea, the Iranians will take this as a signal that the world will have to concede to them too at some point. It would make no sense if the North Koreans can have a nuclear arsenal and intercontinental missiles that can strike the United States, while the Iranians cannot."

"Obama's failure in dealing with the North Korean nuclear issue was a decisive failure," added a senior Israeli security official. "And it is a failure that could have a snowball effect."

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to discuss the issue with Trump at their meeting in Washington, D.C., next month, according to Al-Monitor.

"Trump must stop North Korea," a senior Israeli minister said. "The question is whether Trump is fully aware of how important this issue really is."
