Nothing to see here, move along:

Yonhap news agency says that North Korea has fired two short-range missiles off its east coast. Yonhap quoted an unidentified South Korean government official as saying that the North test-fired the missiles on Monday afternoon…The report came hours after South Korea proposed two sets of working-level talks with North Korea. But Seoul also said it had no plan to resume high-level dialogue with its communist neighbor — amid lingering tensions over the North’s nuclear weapons programs.

Meanwhile, Iran blows off the Nobel Appease Prize-winning Obama administration and plays beat the clock:

Iran dismissed on Monday a U.S. warning that major powers would not wait forever for Tehran to prove it was not developing nuclear bombs, saying any threats or deadlines would have no impact on the Islamic Republic.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Hassan Qashqavi, speaking a week before talks on a proposal to send Iranian uranium abroad for further processing, also reiterated Iran’s refusal to discuss its “nuclear rights” with the six world powers.

“We have announced several times that we have nothing to discuss regarding that,” he told a Tehran news conference in comments translated by Iran’s state Press TV.

“That means continuation of our activities within the framework of the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and the safeguards agreement of the IAEA and enrichment on that basis,” he said, referring to the U.N. nuclear watchdog.

Such comments were likely to fan Western suspicions that Iran is seeking to win time by stringing out inconclusive talks while mastering nuclear technology and stockpiling enriched uranium of potential use for atomic energy or weaponry.
