North Korean Nuclear Tunnels

During his summit with South Korea's President Moon Jae-in last month, The North Korean leader Kim Jong-un said he would invite experts and journalists from South Korea and the U.S. to watch the dismantling of the Punggye-ri facility in North Hamgyong Province.

Dialogue brokered by Seoul has seen US-North Korea relations go from trading personal insults and threats of war past year to a summit between Kim and President Donald Trump due in Singapore on June 12.

Journalists from the United States, Russia, South Korea, China and Britain will be invited to witness the process, North Korea state media said Saturday.

And Pompeo said the USA would remain on board to help develop N. Korea's economy.

When North Korea detonated its most recent nuclear weapon deep inside its mountain test site, the peak's flanks heaved up and outwards by a few metres, according to a detailed reconstruction of the event and its aftermath.

That was foiled by a temporary closing of the border following a North Korea nuclear test in February 2013.

The North selects loyal and relatively affluent citizens to send overseas as workers, and the defection of the 12 women was a major coup for Park Geun Hye, who was South Korea's president at the time and whose conservative government cited it as a sign of disillusionment with Kim among North Korean elites. The man, who's now also in South Korea, said he carried out the escape under plans arranged by South Korea's National Intelligence Service and that the women were brought along without knowledge of where they were going. The tweet came hours after Mr. Trump led a dramatic overnight welcome ceremony for the three Americans released by North Korea - Kim Dong Chul, Kim Hak Song, and Tony Kim. "So we're not talking about sanctions relief at this point", he said.

Pompeo said he had a "good" conversation with North Koreans and did his best to convey the United States message to them. Pompeo said that the denuclearization would need to be verified and permanent in order for it to be considered complete, reported The Hill.

In parallel with dismantlement of the nuclear test ground, guards and researchers will be withdrawn and the surrounding area of the test ground be completely closed.

It is a remarkable turnaround after Trump called Kim Jong-un "little rocket man", before the North Korean leader branded Trump a "do-tard".

President Trump tweeted Thursday that his "highly-anticipated" meeting with Kim will take place in Singapore on June 12. The North has been vowing to pursue nuclear development unless Washington removes its 28,500 troops from South Korea and the nuclear umbrella defending South Korea and Japan.

North Korea has invited the outside world to witness the dismantling of its nuclear facilities before.

Pompeo's second trip to North Korea, this time officially as secretary of state, was remarkably productive.
