Kerry: Iran nuclear deal could be lesson for North Korea

US Secretary of State John Kerry says he’s hopeful that the successful conclusion of a nuclear deal with Iran will send a positive message to North Korea to restart negotiations on its own atomic program. Speaking in Beijing on Saturday, Kerry said he believed an Iran agreement could have “a positive influence” on North Korea, because it would show that giving up nuclear weapons improves domestic economies and ends isolation. He stressed, though, there was no way to tell if North Korea’s reclusive leadership would be able to “internalize” such a message.
