North Korea’s nuclear test site will shut in May and reveal the process to experts and journalists from South Korea and the United States, South Korea’s presidential office has said.
On Friday, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in vowed “complete denuclearisation” of the Korean peninsula in the first inter-Korean summit in more than a decade.
North Korea’s state media had said before the summit that Pyongyang would immediately suspend nuclear and missile tests, scrap its nuclear test site and instead pursue economic growth and peace.
Experts have said that the Punggye-ri test site has mostly been rendered useless following repeated explosions. Scientists have said that the site might have partially collapsed in September.
