Iran obtained 19 advanced missiles from North Korea, according to a cable dated Feb. 24, 2010.

The missiles could for the first time give Iran the capacity to strike at capitals in Western Europe or at Moscow, and American officials warned that their advanced propulsion could speed Iran’s development of intercontinental ballistic missiles.
