Absolutely 100%

North Korea haven't run a nuclear test or launched ICBMs for several months.
Now unilateralists seem to be awarding them brownie points for saying they'll do what they have already done.

Why they stopped? Dunno. Maybe they think they don't need further tests or they are running short of resources. They are certainly down one launch site.
Whether/when they plan to resume is outside my ken but not getting what they want (which is the disarming of South Korea before they consider any disarmament of North Korea) in any upcoming talks is pretty likely trigger point.
