Quantum discord of a tripartite system A:BC

I know that the quantum discord of a bipartite system can be determined as: $${D_A}({\rho _{AB}}) = I({\rho _{AB}}) - {J_A}({\rho _{AB}}),$$ The subscript of $A$ denotes that the measurement has been ...

Why is the quantum discord of $\rho$ zero iff $\rho=\sum_j p_j \pi_j\otimes \rho_j$ for mutually orthogonal projections $\pi_j$?

In (Wiseman 2012), the author mentions (equation (4), page 6), that a state $\rho$ has zero quantum discord (more precisely, zero Alice-discord) if and only if it can be written in the form $$\rho = \...
