A recent agreement signed between Iran and North Korea is designed to send a defiant signal to the international community, but does not point to any substantial new developments in the well-established military trade between the two countries, an expert on Iran told The Jerusalem Post.

According to Iranian media reports, the agreement, signed over the weekend in the presence of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and North Korea’s de facto head of state, Kim Yong Nam, in Tehran, will result in cooperation on technological and scientific developments, and will include delegations of scientists traveling between the two countries.
