North Korea seemed blasting its nuclear test site, leaving around a number of explosions within a period of few hours in attendance of international journalists.
Tom Cheshire, a reporter at Sky News informed that he walked up towards the mountains with his colleagues to watch the demolition, as they were invited to witness the explosion. The country has managed to destroy three nuclear tunnels, living quarters, metal foundry and observation buildings on Thursday at the Punggye-ri Nuclear Test Site.
The country pledged for closing the test site of Punggye-ri, which is another provision to utilize for nuclear weapons program by the country. Yongbyon nuclear complex has new reactor, which is situated at the nearly 64 miles north from Pyongyang, so that it could develop weapons-grade plutonium.
North Korea dictator, Kim Jong Un also did announce previously the closure of the country’s nuclear site as a part of the planned negotiation with U.S. President Donald Trump, which is scheduled on June 12.
38 North – the informed analysis of events in and around North Korea reported to be disclosing the satellite images it has captured earlier the month, which show the mining carts’ removal and flattening buildings by the government at the site.
Choe Sun Hui, vice foreign minister of North Korea said in a statement that, “As a person involved in the U.S. affairs, I cannot suppress my surprise at such ignorant and stupid remarks gushing out from the mouth of the U.S. vice president.”
“Whether the U.S. will meet us at a meeting room or encounter us at nuclear-to-nuclear showdown is entirely dependent upon the decision and behavior of the United States,” Choe Sun Hui added to the statement.
