A stubborn partner in the northeast

Kim Jong-un is testing more missiles in 2022 than ever before.
Russia is not the only problematic partner for China. North Korea is also stirring up trouble with a never-ending series of missile tests. Beijing needs Pyongyang and therefore must continue to defend Kim's actions.
It was that time again on Sunday: North Korea reported a missile test. Last week, such a test had apparently gone wrong: debris rained from the sky near Pyongyang. So far this year, ruler Kim Jong-un has launched a whopping eleven test series with dozens of missiles, after he had already gradually increased the test frequency since the fall of 2021. Kim is experimenting as he last did in the so-called "fire and fury" era with its combination of nuclear and missile tests and particularly bellicose rhetoric from both Pyongyang and Washington. New satellite images also show activity at the Punggye-ri nuclear test site, which had been actually shut down in 2018, Reuters reported in early March. It is the only known nuclear test site. North Korea has been steadily developing its nuclear and ballistic missile programs, a UN report said in early February.
