North Korea will soon carry out a nuclear experiment, and Iranian scientists could be present at the explosion site, sources familiar with the issue told The Jerusalem Post Monday.

Iranian officials from the Shahid Hemmat Industrial Group observed a failed North Korean rocket launch on  April 13, according to a report by the South Korean Yonhap news agency.

Although Seoul has neither confirmed nor denied the report, it believes that a delegation of a dozen Iranian scientists may have been technically involved in North Korea's failed  long-range rocket launch, which North Korea said was a satellite launch.

Now, the Islamic Republic may be planning a presence at North Korea's upcoming third nuclear test as well.
