North Korea begins dismantling its nuclear silo

North Korea begins dismantling its nuclear silo

We hope Kim makes a wise choice.

Resource 38North, which is monitoring the situation in the DPRK, said that the leadership of North Korea start dismantling the country's largest nuclear test site, Pungere.

However, analysts say the last five nuclear tests were all conducted using the same tunnel, and that although that tunnel may be damaged beyond fix, the North Koreans could dig others for potential future tests. The southern and western portals could still support detonations, even if the northern side was badly damaged over the five nuclear tests conducted there, 38 North said April 30.

"It is too early to predict (with one month left before the summit), but I think the North will move toward sufficient, verifiable, irreversible dismantling, which is to sufficiently reduce threats from nuclear weapons, rather than seek complete, verifiable and irreversible dismantlement (CVID)", he told reporters.

When asked Monday whether denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula includes the USA nuclear umbrella and the deployment of American strategic assets, a key Blue House official told reporters that the "issue will be discussed between North Korea and the United States".

North Korea's government says it is considering calling off a planned nuclear summit between dictator Kim Jong-un and U.S. President Donald Trump. Suh pointed out that North Korea refers to the Punggye-ri facility as its "northern test site", possibly implying there are others.

Mr Trump's Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Friday that North Korea can look forward to "a future brimming with peace and prosperity" if it agrees to quickly give up its nuclear weapons.

Mr Kim declared his nuclear force as complete in December, following North Korea's most powerful nuclear test to date in September and three flight tests of ICBMs created to reach the USA mainland.

North Korea's state-run media, however, has blasted Japan for putting undue focus on the abduction issue.

The projects President Moon Jae-in pledged following his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un last month involves more than W16 trillion in costs.

North Korea, whose economy has been suffocated for decades by worldwide sanctions imposed by the United States, was promised by Mike Pompeo on May 11 that "If Chairman Kim chooses the right path, there is a future brimming with peace and prosperity for the North Korea people".

The move comes ahead of leader Kim Jong Un's summit with Mr Trump next month.
