Unic Press UK: The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), also known as North Korea, said Saturday that their nuclear test site would be dismantled via a controlled explosion.
In a press statement yesterday, the country’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic said:
“In accordance with the decision of the Third Plenary Meeting of the Seventh Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea, the Nuclear Weapon Institute and other concerned institutions are taking technical measures for dismantling the northern nuclear test ground of the DPRK in order to ensure transparency of discontinuance of the nuclear test. A ceremony for dismantling the nuclear test ground is now scheduled between May 23 and 25, depending on weather condition. Dismantlement of the nuclear test ground will be done in the following sequence-making all tunnels of the test ground collapse by explosion; completely blocking entries; removing all observation facilities, research institutes and structures of guard units on the ground. In parallel with dismantlement of the nuclear test ground, guards and researchers will be withdrawn and the surrounding area of the test ground be completely closed,” the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported.
The U.S. President, Donald Trump, has been pressing for the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, and had unleashed a barrage of sanctions against North Korea and many officials of the government. The United Nations also imposed a series of sanctions against the communist State. The North Korean leader is demanding assurances that the U.S. will not invade his country, insisting on piecemeal denuclearization in exchange for relaxed sanctions.
