North Korea, Iran Seek to Boost Friendly Relations

A0243355.jpgTEHRAN (Fars News Agency)- Officials from North Korea and Iran met in Tehran and exchanged views on how to boost friendly relations between and on issues of mutual concern.

Head of North Korea’s People’s Assembly, Choe Thae Bok, held talks with Iranian parliament Speaker Gholam Ali Haddad Adel in a friendly atmosphere on Thursday.

Choe met with Iran’s Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki on Wednesday.

Choe said earlier this week that his country wouldn’t need even a single nuclear bomb if the US ceases its nuclear threat and sanctions against North Korea.

The North conducted a nuclear test explosion last month.

North Korea has said it will rejoin long-stalled six-country talks, expected to resume in Beijing next month, on ending its nuclear weapons program.

The talks include the US, the two Koreas, China, Russia and Japan.
