A North Korean news reader announces North Korea's last nuke test

Kim had revealed plans to shut down the nuclear test site during his summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in last month.

He stressed the special relationship and track record of support the US has with Korean people, promising the North Korean people "a future brimming with peace and prosperity" if its leadership "chooses the right path".

"I have mapped surface displacement from many geodynamic processes such as earthquakes, volcano eruptions, landslides, but I have never seen such a large displacement caused by human activity", says study co-author Teng Wang, a remote-sensing and geodesy researcher at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore. For its part, North Korea wants the lifting of sanctions and for the U.S.to withdraw the 28,500 troops it has stationed in South Korea.

United States of America will help the DPRK to address economic problems if the government will completely abandon nuclear weapons. "A big undertaking for sure but one that Chairman Kim and I had the opportunity to have a good sound discussion on, so that I think we have a pretty good understanding between our two countries about what the shared objectives are".

Reporters from South Korea, China, Russia, the United States and the United Kingdom are to cover the ceremony, it said.

The United States aspires to have North Korea as a "close partner" and not an enemy, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Friday, noting that the USA has often in history become good friends with former adversaries. 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.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has pledged to close the site by the end of May, a possible signal of his willingness to negotiate giving up his country's nuclear weapons. One, people wonder if North Korea's definition of denuclearization is the same as the United States'.

Mike Pence said, "What Kim Jong Un has said publicly and in discussions is that he is prepared, he is prepared to negotiate to achieve complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula". In another sign of improving relations, North Korea this week released three US citizens who had been imprisoned in the country. "In the latest survey, talks about more than 90 percent of South Koreans support the meeting with the North Korean president". With U.S. help, those countries recovered from the devastation of conflict.

Choi believes his father was executed in North Korea in 1970.

The talks, which are expected to last a day, are set to focus on North Korea's rapidly advancing nuclear and ballistic weapons programs.

But six nuclear tests had rattled the mountain.
