Do readers have any idea what this could be a reference to?

Similarly, Henry Sokolski, executive director of the Nonproliferation Policy Education Center, said: "If we wink at this nuclear-capable rocket launch...how in the world can we object to North Korean and Iranian tests without looking like hypocrites?" Sokolski says Washington has been slowly relaxing a missile nonproliferation policy that led to sanctions or other pressures against South Africa, Australia, Israel, India, Brazil and Argentina.

Perhaps Sokolski was misquoted. He has written a couple of guest posts for The Interpreter in the past, so I will email him for more information.
