Kim Jong-un promised to close the largest nuclear test site in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea Pungery until the end of May. As the Yonhap agency reports , the North Korean leader informed South Korean President Mun Zhe In of his decision.

North Korea intends to make the closure of the site public for journalists and foreign experts to demonstrate its decision to the southerners. According to the media quotation, Kim Jong-un said that he is “not the person who will strike nuclear strikes” over South Korea, the US or the Pacific Ocean.

Earlier, the US president promised to meet with Kim Jong-no in the next three to four weeks. The official date is not yet, but, probably, Pungery’s closing will take place before the meeting with Trump.

At least six nuclear tests of North Korea, the last in September 2017, took place at the Pungery training ground. In April 2018, Chinese scientists reported the collapse of the mountain at the test site, because of which they suspended the tests.
