Foreign researchers have increasingly leveraged advanced open source intelligence technology and cooperated across countries to track North Korea's developments over the last 25 years.  But one country has been left out – China.  Are there open source Chinese analyses of DPRK ballistic missiles, do they align with U.S. assessments, and is there anything for other researchers to gain from reading these analyses?  This report by Nathan Beauchamp-Mustafaga and Dr. Scott W. Harold examines Chinese assessments of North Korean ballistic missile capabilities between 1998 and 2017.
