What Do North Korea’s Latest Missile Launches Mean?

Since its unusual military parade on September 9, which did not put on display any new weapons systems, North Korea has tested both cruise and ballistic missiles. Experts have offered a variety of theories to explain the move. Some analysts argued that the North has decided to further strengthen its self-defense capabilities to counter the U.S. effectively, indicating that renewed dialogue between the United States and North Korea is unlikely to happen in the near future. Others make the opposite argument, predicting that bilateral or multilateral negotiations on denuclearization will take place soon, considering the diplomatic efforts made by neighboring countries last week in Tokyo and Seoul.
