On state TV North Korea committing to complete denuclearization.
That was two weeks ago when during a summit between the North and South Korean leaders, Kim Jong-un declared he would shut down his nuclear test site.
And now he set a date.
The remote mountain Punggye-ri site will be dismantled in less than two weeks,
at a ceremony to which journalists from all over the world will be invited to watch.
From this highly secretive state, it is the latest in a series of symbolic gestures,
designed to smooth the path to President Kim’s much-anticipated meeting with President Trump next month.
America has said it wants to see complete, verifiable and irreversible nuclear disarmament.
But today’s announcement made no mention of whether or not experts would be allowed to visit the site.
Some scientists say they believe the testing facility has already collapsed.
As North Korea’s Supreme Leader prepares for his historic summit with President Trump,
the world will be watching to see whether a country that has broken its promises in the past really intends to keep this one.
