Tensions between the U.S. and Iran are escalating at an alarming rate following the death of Iran's top commander Qassem Soleimani in a U.S. airstrike in Baghdad. Iran has vowed revenge and announced it would no longer abide by its commitments under the nuclear deal it signed with world powers in 2015. Some analysts say the killing of Soleimani could be a U.S. warning to North Korea not to cross the red line. What impact will the current Iranian crisis have on North Korea-U.S. nuclear negotiations?
