ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the possible interpretations of the intentions of North Korea behind its nuclear and missile tests in 2009. It begins with the possibility that Pyongyang's action was driven by its fear to Seoul, South Korea. Second possible reason is that North Korea was acting to communicate its resolve against Washington, whereas, the third interpretation suggests that it may have been caused by the internal politicking within its capital.
