Kim Dong-yub, an analyst at Seoul's Institute for Far Eastern Studies, questioned why North Korea would do a shorter launch of the KN-15. And China will either decide to help us with North Korea, or they won't. Many weapons experts say the North could have a functioning nuclear-tipped missile capable of reaching the continental US within a few years.

North Korea has long fired missiles and detonated nuclear devices during major political events in South Korea and the United States, and before or during regional talks. Earlier in March, North Korea fired four ballistic missiles that flew about 1,000 kilometers (620 miles), with three of them landing in waters that Japan claims as its exclusive economic zone.
