North Korea recently test fired eight short-range ballistic missiles from several locations toward the sea. U.S. and South Korean officials say these tests might culminate in a nuclear test explosion.

  • Soo Kim, policy analyst at RAND Corporation and former analyst at the Central Intelligence Agency, said North Korea’s goal is to escalate tensions with South Korea and communicate to the international community that Kim Jong-un will go nuclear.
  • Kim said the number of missiles tested was “striking,” as the eight tests from North Korea were followed by eight U.S.-South Korea tests.
  • South Korea is trying to protect regional security and discourage North Korea from taking more drastic measures, she said.
