UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY) – North Korea has pledged to close its largest nuclear test site in Pungery in May this year and demonstrate this process to the South, South Korean media reported referring to the administration of the President of South Korea.
“North Korea will close the Pungery test site in May,” the reports say.
It is noted that Pyongyang intends to close the site “publicly” and demonstrate this process to the South by inviting journalists and experts.
“Someone says that we stop objects that do not work, you can make sure that they are in excellent condition,” the South Korean official of the leader of the DPRK, Kim Jong-no, quoted.
“Kim Jong-un said he will not need nuclear weapons if the US agrees to an official cessation of the war,” the official said. He also noted that in this case, North Korea guarantees the refusal to use force to “not repeat the sad history of the Korean War” of 1950-1953.
In addition, according to media reports, the representative of Seoul informed that the DPRK plans to align North Korean time with South Korean, which now varies by 30 minutes.
Earlier, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told reporters the words of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un about his readiness to present the plan of denuclearization of the country. President Trump expressed his readiness to meet with Kim Jong-no in three or four weeks.
