North Korea 'taking measures' to dismantle nuclear site

North Korea said it will hold a'ceremony for the dismantling of its nuclear test site

The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) announced that it will hold a ceremony for the dismantling of its nuclear test site on May 23-25, state media said Saturday.

"Dismantlement of the nuclear test ground will be done in the following sequence - making all tunnels of the test ground collapse by explosion; completely blocking entries; removing all observation facilities, research institutes and structures of guard units on the ground", the North's Foreign Ministry said in a statement carried by the state-run Korean Central News Agency.

During the third inter-Korean summit on April 27, Kim told South Korean President Moon Jae-in that he would "carry out the closure of the northern nuclear test site in May", according to Seoul's presidential office, Cheong Wa Dae.

North Korea has invited the outside world to witness the dismantling of its nuclear facilities before.

The display at Punggye-ri, in the northwest of the country, will be another step in leader Kim Jong Un's charm offensive.

Dialogue brokered by Seoul has seen US-North Korea relations go from trading personal insults and threats of war past year to a summit between Kim and President Donald Trump due in Singapore on June 12.

Ministry officials say the complete tunnel complex used for nuclear testing will be destroyed.

How important is the Trump-Kim meeting?

.

Pompeo and other U.S. officials have repeatedly said they are seeking North Korea's permanent verifiable denuclearization, while North Korean officials have said that they have already achieved their nuclear objectives.

Following the release of three American prisoners Wednesday, President Donald Trump announced he will meet with Kim in Singapore on June 12.

Former US Secretary of Defense Ash Carter warned Friday that the United States should be cautious of any promises made by North Korea at the upcoming Trump-Kim summit.

"I didn't see starvation like you had in the famine back in the 1990s, that's the good news".
