US Promises To Rebuild North Korea If It Gives Up Nukes

Trump welcomes N Korea's nuclear site plan

Trump welcomes N Korea's nuclear site plan

The announcement comes after President Trump said he would hold a summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore on June 12.

Journalists from five countries have been invited to attend the ceremony when North Korea's Punggye-ri nuclear test site will be dismantled, North Korea's Foreign Ministry said on Saturday.

North Korea will openly dismantle its nuclear test site around May 23-25, state media said.

"So, in order to achieve that, it will require a robust verification programme and one that we will undertake with partners around the world, which will achieve that outcome in a way that frankly no agreement before it has ever set forth".

North Korea previously committed to dismantling its "northern nuclear test ground" at the 3rd Plenary Meeting of the 7th Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) on April 21.

North Korea's human rights issues weren't specifically mentioned in a joint statement announced by Mr. Moon and Mr. Kim after their summit last month.

When Trump and Kim do sit down, the two relatively untested leaders will be presented with a puzzle that has stymied seasoned diplomats for decades.

South Korea's Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha met with her US counterpart, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, for the first time on Friday.

"Yes that will happen but we are only to also consider that's not the only nuclear facilities in North Korea", said Yoon. All of North Korea's nuclear tests to date have been conducted deep inside this mountain to reduce the probability of radioactive materials leaking out to pollute the air or water around a detonation. Seoul's Unification Ministry has said it hopes to solve the abductees issue through future inter-Korean talks and worldwide efforts, but has not announced specific plans.

Following the Moon-Kim summit, Moon's office said Kim was willing to disclose the process to global experts, but the North's statement Saturday didn't include any mention about allowing experts on the site.

In light of North Korea's recent pledge to denuclearise, it's easy to speculate that any progress in nuclear testing might now be more of a challenge for the state.

North Korea claimed to have detonated a hydrogen bomb, which would be exponentially more powerful than the atomic devices previously tested, and experts said the size of the natural disaster suggested that it had indeed been a hydrogen, or thermonuclear, explosion.

U.S. President Donald Trump announced Friday that the historic summit will hold in Singapore.

North Korean defectors often cross China into Southeast Asia before trying to reach South Korea.

An underground test of what was claimed by North Korea to be a hydrogen bomb shook the surrounding landscape so violently, it changed the shape of an entire mountain.
