North Korea Wants to Immediately Start Dismantling Nuclear site. North Korea is going to clear up its nuclear test site in Punggye-Ri as early as May. That is what the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un said during his historic meeting with the South Korean president Moon Jae-in, the government in Seoul said on Sunday. INC News writes, besides, the North Korean regime will invite foreign experts to verify the dismantling of the site.

 

The North Korean leader stated that “he will proceed to the closure of the nuclear test site in May and that he will soon invite experts from South Korea and the United States to make the process transparent,” a spokesman said. From President Moon, Yoon Young-chan, Sunday.

Unusable?

Earlier this week, a study by Chinese geologists showed that the test site was severely damaged anyway. Due to the collapse of a tunnel, the mountain where the tests go through would be too severely damaged to be used for further tests. Kim Jong-un, however, would have contradicted this.

Trust

More than a week ago, Pyongyang had already announced that it would suspend its nuclear tests and missile tests. The announcement that it will dismantle its main nuclear site now comes in the run-up to an equally historic meeting with American President Donald Trump in late May or early June. According to South Korea, Kim wants to build up a ‘relationship of trust with the United States’ and obtain ‘insurance of non-aggression’.

Kim also promised that he would ‘never use violence’ against South Korea, although the countries are officially still in a state of war. That is because the truce was never formalised after the battle of 1950-1953.

Time zone

Besides, North Korea leaves its standard time with half an hour, making it in the same time zone as South Korea.

Peace agreement

Moon and Kim met Friday in Panmunjom, in the demilitarised zone wherein 1953 the armistice between the two Koreas was signed. At the historic meeting, both leaders announced that they want to agree this year to achieve permanent peace and complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula.
