After South Korea criticized its Northern neighbor for allegedly testing out new weapons -- including a ballistic missile -- the North has come out with a critical response, claiming that the accusations are unfair and that the country was conducting a regular test of its defensive capabilities.

This was repeated by several statements from representatives for North Korea, who claimed that the test was a routine military drill, and was necessary to keep the nation's defensive capabilities in check.

However, there have been concerns on the international scene that the country might be overstepping certain boundaries in its actions, and that there might be a need for further sanctions in the future.

It is also worth pointing out that these launches are the first in almost two years.

Many people believed that the country was done testing its arms and was going to withdraw from the offensive displays observers have seen in the past, but that does not seem to be the case so far.

Meanwhile, negotiations between North Korea and other countries seem to be deteriorating again, after briefly improving in recent years.

Oddly enough, it was U.S. President Donald Trump who had managed to warm things up a bit, according to some observers, but the leader of the free world also ended up making some statements that rubbed North Korea the wrong way, moving things back to the original state.

It is not clear what intentions North Korea and Kim Jong-un might have regarding the U.S. and the rest of the world right now, but many people have been questioning the country's position.

Trump said in an interview with Politico: "They're short-range and I don't consider that a breach of trust at all. And, you know, at some point I may. But at this point no. These were short-range missiles and very standard stuff. Very standard."

He continued with: "They're talking about negotiating, but I don't think they're ready to negotiate."

Experts say North Korea is just trying to pressure Trump to return to the negotiation table after previous talks failed to reach a satisfying conclusion.

Should Trump restart the negotiations, yes or no?
