Why North Korea hasn't launched a missile in 56 days despite repeated tests

World
Though President Donald Trump is on a high-profile visit to Asia this week, North Korea has refrained from testing another ballistic missile or nuclear bomb, making this the longest stretch of time since Trump took office that the regime has not conducted a test.
