North Korea said Saturday that it will dismantle its nuclear test site in less than two weeks, in a dramatic event that would set up leader Kim Jong Un's summit with President Donald Trump next month.
In a statement carried by state media, North Korea's Foreign Ministry said that all of the tunnels at the country's northeastern testing ground will be destroyed by explosion, and that observation and research facilities and ground‑based guard units will also be removed.
Analysts say that while the closure of the site is important, it doesn't represent a material step toward full denuclearisation.
It said the North will invite journalists from the United States, South Korea, China, Russia and Britain to witness the dismantling process.
