North Korea’s development of atomic weapons and the means to deliver them may prompt Japan to consider becoming a nuclear power, U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney said Sunday.

“The idea of a nuclear-armed North Korea with ballistic missiles to deliver those will, I think, probably set off an arms race in that part of the world. And others, perhaps Japan, for example, may be forced to consider whether or not they want to readdress the nuclear question,” Cheney said on the NBC TV program “Meet the Press.”
