Here is the latest speculation from experts on what North Korea plans to do next:
Two key officials in charge of North Korea’s missile development were absent at recent major events, a mass rally in Pyongyang on Saturday and the Workers Party anniversary on Tuesday.
Neither Ri Man-gon, who oversees the party’s department in charge of nuclear weapons and missile development, nor Kim Rak-gyom, the head of the Strategic Rocket Forces who is in charge of ballistic missile launches, showed up.
That has given rise to speculation that they are busy somewhere else preparing for a fresh missile launch. [Chosun Ilbo]
