"north Korea is trying to put pressure on the USA with the only means – by showing strength and muscle. The result may be counterproductive, according to a forecaster."
"– Trump has not responded positively to such threats in the past, " says Nordkoreaanalytikern Niklas Swanström to the TT."
"It was not unexpected that north Korea would do anything to put pressure on the united states, according to Swanström. There is nothing to suggest, however, that they now fired the robots are long-range missiles, which means that the dictator Kim Jong-Un can assert that the country has not breached any agreement."
"– It is a strong indication that he is trying to get Donald Trump's attention. North korea is extremely frustrated that the united states not to drop sanctions and recognise it as a nuclear state. This is then a way to provoke a dialogue, " says Niklas Swanström, director of the Institute for security and development policy."
"TT: Is there a risk that north Korea is rather impairs its location with this?"
"– Yes, I would think that this is the case. It is extremely difficult for Trump to respond positively to these provocations, as well as to drop the sanctions if it did not lead to disarmament."
"the Firing, however, should not be seen as a threat to the neighbouring countries – it is directed against the united states, assesses the Swanström. But the incident raises the question of whether north Korea continues to act provocatively every time the two countries do not agree."
" I can understand why they have done it, for it is the only tool you have. But in the long term it is not positive for the continued dialogue."
"Donald Trump, it may also more of a struggle to sell in the picture of the two countries now stand on the good foot."
"the united states continued to be keen to pursue a dialogue while the counterparty is more svårflörtad," says Swanström."
"– It is mainly the north koreans are reluctant to discuss with the united states, because they cannot see that sanctions are about to drop."
"HH: So what happens the next time?"
" If north Korea does not provoke a further, this will not make any deeper impression. The united states is so willing to engage in a dialogue and do not want to escalate this. I also believe that the international community will try to play this down."
