North Korea uses the nuclear issue to reopen dialogue with the United States. That tendency appears from its rhetoric and concrete actions. On Monday, September 9, top North Korean officials said they were willing to reopen dialogue with the United States over the abolition of North Korea's nuclear program. But a few hours later the North Korean military fired two short-range projectiles which is the tenth test since early May 2019. North Korea's nuclear test continues after no agreement reached between President Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un at a meeting in Hanoi last February. At that time, President Donald Trump had dispelled the hopes of Kim Jong-un who requested that Washington revokes sanctions imposed on North Korea. KIm Jong-un stated that US sanctions had weakened North Korea. North Korea's hopes, the United States will soften and change policies by lifting economic sanctions, have not yet materialized. The launch of the projectile carried out by North Korea can be seen as Kim Jong-un's strategy of pressuring Washington to reopen a dialogue that has stalled since last February. Regarding North Korea's statement to return to negotiations, Washington so far has not given any serious response. From the White House reportedly, President Donald Trump only stated that it was a good thing to negotiate with North Korea. There has also been no reaction to North Korea's projectile test hours after the desire to return to the negotiating table was stated. Both parties, the United States and North Korea have to find ways to resolve their disputes.
