  • A North Korean news reader announces North Korea's last nuke test

Saturday's announcement came ahead of a scheduled summit between Kim and U.S. President Donald Trump in Singapore on June 12.

The announcement by the North's Foreign Ministry moves the communist country closer to honoring an offer made by its leader Kim Jong-un during the inter-Korean summit last month.

The Nuclear Weapons Institute and other collaborating institutions are "taking technical measures" to destroy the site and "ensure transparency of discontinuance of the nuclear test", the statement said.

The dismantling of the Punggye-ri site, the exact date of which will depend on weather conditions, will involve the collapsing of all tunnels using explosives and the removal of all observation facilities, research buildings and security posts.

Pompeo had met beforehand with Kim whereas Central Intelligence Agency director, flying secretly to North Korea over the Easter weekend to debate the opportunity of a summit assembly with Trump and negotiations over North Korea's nuclear program.

At this meeting, the chief TDP played the videos of Modi's speech he delivered in Tirupati on the same day in 2014. Police also took around half a dozen protesters into custody to prevent them from following Amit Shah's convoy.

Since Trump announced plans to hold a summit with Kim, questions have been raised continually about whether the two leaders have the same objective in mind when they speak about "denuclearization". DPRK is an acronym for North Korea's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

"Now that North Korea has accepted in principle that agreements should be verified, US negotiators should hold them to this standard for any subsequent agreement", Adam Mount, a senior defense analyst at the Federation of American Scientists, told The AP.

At a ruling party meeting last month, North Korea had already announced that it has suspended all tests of nuclear devices and ICBMs and the plan to close the nuclear testing ground. They said that after six tests, all conducted in deep tunnels, the place has caved in and become too unstable for another test. Two of the North Korean missiles handed over the Japanese island of Hokkaido.

Mr Trump announced the date and place of the summit earlier this week, hours after he welcomed home three United States detainees released from North Korea.

The summit, which has been in the works since Trump accepted Kim's invitation to meet in March, will be the first ever meeting between a sitting U.S. president and North Korean leader.

But North Korea has said it's willing to talk now because it's already succeeded in becoming a nuclear-armed state, fueling skepticism that the North would truly being willing to give those weapons up.

Nevertheless, White Home press secretary Sarah Sanders mentioned that she didn't consider that Moon can be part of the historic Trump-Kim summit the next month.

It follows a flurry of global engagement with North Korea as the two Koreas held their own summit in late April and officials plan to hold high-level meetings in coming weeks.

Trump struck an optimistic tone on North Korea as he personally welcomed home the freed American detainees early Thursday. "A lot of very good things have happened", Trump said as he greeted the three former prisoners at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland. "It's never been taken this far, there has never been a relationship like this. I actually assume a variety of progress has been made".
