North Korea Begins Dismantling Nuclear Test Site

North Korea Begins Dismantling Nuclear Test Site

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un announced the decommissioning of the Punggye-ri site during the summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in in late April, saying that Pyongyang's pursuit for nuclear weapons was complete so the test site was no longer needed.

"Commercial satellite images reveal that the dismantling of the nuclear test site has already commenced, including various operational support buildings located near the northern, western and southern passages". The North's state media said later that the two sides reached "a satisfactory consensus on the issues discussed".

It assessed that the North has kept the buildings because the final dismantlement of the nuclear test ground will be witnessed by foreign journalists and involve the collapsing of all of its tunnels with explosions, blocking of entrances, and removing all observation facilities, research buildings and security posts.

The appetite for property purchases in light of cooling tensions on the peninsula has also spread to South Korea, where demand for property in small towns and sparsely populated rural areas around the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) is surging to bet on an influx of people and investment.

South Korea's Yonhap News Agency says North Korea is canceling a high-level meeting between the two countries and is threatening also to cancel a summit with the United States due to ongoing military exercises between the US and South Korea.

Still, however, Pyongyang could use the possibility of giving up some of its nuclear stockpile as a negotiating card, they said.
