Ya'alon: N. Korea's nuclear tests will have indirect effect on Israel

North Korea's recent nuclear tests will have an indirect effect on Israel, Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe Ya'alon said in a Knesset speech on Wednesday. Ya'alon explained that the international community's "recessive" response to North Korea's actions would likely slow down the fight against Iran's nuclear program. "North Korea's resistance will have an influence on the conduct of Iran and other rogue states," he said. "The weak international response is likely to encourage Iran and other rogue states to continue to break the rules - certainly regarding Iran's nuclear program."
