Former Los Alamos National Laboratory director Siegfried Hecker will present a public lecture on “Iran and North Korea what a difference a year makes” at 7 p.m. Friday at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, 1967 18th Street in Los Alamos.
In a release, Hecker, who now works at Stanford, said, “one year ago, Iran’s President Ahmadinejad was still threatening to wipe Israel off the face of the map while Iran’s nuclear program was progressing steadily.
“Now, recently elected President Hassan Rohani and his foreign minister Javad Zarif are pursuing a nuclear deal and rapprochment with the West. In North Korea, the young, Swiss-educated Kim appeared to be willing to compromise with the West. But recently he carried out one of the most brutal leadership purges, including executing his uncle.
“In the meantime, the North’s nuclear program is moving ahead on all fronts. I will provide a perspective on these two nuclear cases based on interactions with key officials from both countries.”
