ABSTRACT
The article focuses on issues related to the proliferation of nuclear weapons in Iran and North Korea. Enrichment of weapons would allow Iran to learn the difficult technology of balancing things. Moreover, agreeing to enrichment would make it much more difficult for the International Atomic Energy Agency in deciding where an overt program stops and a covert one begins. North Korea is considered the worst failure of the non-proliferation arrangements, and the country is now on track to steadily increase its nuclear weapons arsenal.
