Western intelligence agencies believe that Iran and North Korea are sharing intelligence on their common enemies, the Nikkei reported on Monday. According to the Japanese weekly, the two countries are said to have struck a deal in March which stipulates that Iran collects information regarding South Korea via the Islamic republic's embassy in Seoul and relays it to Pyongyang. North Korea is thought to be seeking information on Seoul's reactions to Pyongyang's missile tests, South Korean arms acquisitions and the movements of the US forces stationed in the South, the report stated. According to the purported agreement, in turn, North Korea provides Iran with information on US military activities in the Persian Gulf.
