North Korea to dismantle nuclear site in front of foreign media

"A ceremony is scheduled to dismantle nuclear testing facility between 23 and 25 May, depending on wear conditions", agency reported, citing a communiqué from North Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

North Korea's Foreign Ministry said Saturday that all the tunnels at the country's northeastern testing ground will be destroyed by explosion and that observation and research facilities and ground-based testing units will also be removed.

North Korea outlined steps Saturday to dismantle its nuclear testing site - and confirmed that global journalists, including from the United States and the United Kingdom, would be invited in May to watch as its tunnels are blown up.

Since house is restricted, exclusively journalists from China, Russia, South Korea, the United States of America and the UK might be allowed entry, in accordance with KCNA. The North has been vowing to pursue nuclear development unless Washington removes its 28,500 troops from South Korea and the nuclear umbrella defending South Korea and Japan.

Kim has already invited foreign journalists to watch the dismantling of the nuclear test site, an offer the Foreign Ministry reiterated and explained the process for on Saturday.

Pompeo had met previously with Kim while Central Intelligence Agency director, flying secretly to North Korea over the Easter weekend to discuss the possibility of a summit meeting with Trump and negotiations over North Korea's nuclear program.

Analysts say the dismantling of the site is a useful precedent for negotiations.

Tensions had been mounting for years as Pyongyang's nuclear and ballistic missile programmes saw it subjected to multiple rounds of increasingly strict sanctions by the UN Security Council, the US, EU, South Korea and others, and Trump last year threatened the North with "fire and fury".

Not only was it later revealed North Korea was secretly enriching uranium, but the rogue nation conducted its second nuclear test less than one year later in May 2009.
