Analysts here said the international community's response to North Korea would likely influence Iran's nuclear program. Iran is watching what's going on and will study any future development very closely, said Dr. Ephraim Asculai, a senior researcher at the Jaffee Center for Strategic Studies. "What will happen now will determine [in] a significant way what happens with Iran. If they [the international community] let this event go unanswered with no major reply to the test, then Iran can feel much better about its program," said Asculai, a 40-year veteran of the Israel Atomic Energy Commission and appointee to the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna.
