The United States and China committed Saturday to a process aimed at ridding North Korea of its nuclear weapons, with the Obama administration gaining at least the rhetorical support of the only government that can exert significant influence over the reclusive North.
The United States’ strategic nuclear triad of land-based missiles, bombers and nuclear-armed submarines has served the country well but may be threatened, Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D., told a Washington, D.C., audience this week.
Iran has the knowledge and scientific capability to produce nuclear weapons but will never do so, a prominent lawmaker has said. His assertion published on parliament's website late Friday suggests that Iran is trying to show unity in its political establishment around its often repeated claims that it seeks world-class technological advances including nuclear expertise, but does not want to develop atomic arms as the U.S. and its allies claim.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Sunday urged Iran to back up its declaration that Islam bars weapons of mass destruction by agreeing to a plan that would prove it does not intend to develop nuclear arms.

As pressure mounts over Iran's nuclear program, a top Iranian general warned today that the nation will pre-emptively strike anyone who threatens it. The statement by Gen. Mohammed Hejazi continues the defiant tone Tehran has taken in its confrontation with Western countries that claim it is developing nuclear weapons. Iran says its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes.
The attack in Tehran bore a strong resemblance to earlier killings of scientists working on the Iranian nuclear program. It is certain to amplify authorities' claims of clandestine operations by Western powers and their allies to halt Iran's nuclear advances.
Russia expressed regret and concern today about Iran's launch of an underground uranium enrichment facility, but urged all parties involved in the nuclear standoff with Tehran - Iran's an important trading partner - to avoid hasty moves.
