North Korea Just Announced It Will Stop Conducting Nuclear And Missile Tests

South Korea Koreas Summit Leaders Hotline

Kim said the regime's nuclear test site in the northern area of the country has completed its mission and will be dismantled, the Korean Central News Agency said in a statement.

Kim Jong-un is set to hold a summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in next Friday.

Within minutes of the report being issued, Trump tweeted: "This is very good news for North Korea and the World - big progress!" He also said he's looking forward to his upcoming summit with Kim.

Moon said Thursday that the North had shown "a willingness for a complete denuclearisation", and had not demanded the withdrawal of U.S. troops.

North Korea suspends missile tests
In the same address, he said he had a nuclear button on his desk, prompting Trump to tweet that he had a bigger one of his own. It is understood the decision was made at a meeting of the ruling Worker's Party of Korea's central committee on Friday.

KCNA also said North Korea will join global efforts to halt nuclear tests entirely. North Korea had previously cut those links in 2016 during inter-Korean tensions.

"Denuclearisation will be a great thing for World, but also for North Korea!"

In the Central Committee plenary meeting last October, Kim affirmed his "Byungjin Nosun" policy in a speech, stressing that the Workers' Party should "invariably keep to this road" of simultaneously pursuing economic growth and nuclear weapons development. "The North is expressing a will for a complete denuclearization".

In February, athletes from the North and South walked under a unified Korean flag at the Winter Olympics opening ceremony in Pyeongchang.

The costs will likely be shared by Southwest; the engine's maker, CFM International; and the plane's manufacturer, Boeing . The Times says American Airlines has about 300 planes with the same type of engines and Delta Air Lines has about 185.

Kim also said that North Korea is now committed to establishing "a favorable worldwide environment for the construction of a socialist economy and mobilize the human and material resources of the country to dramatically raise people's lives". But it has not launched a missile test since late November, or conducted a nuclear test since last September.

This year, intelligence members revealed Kim Jong-Un could put a nuclear warhead on a missile that would reach the United States.

"If anything, they may agree to a broad declaration in favor of denuclearization followed by an incentive-based phase process".

Japan's defence minister Itsunori Onodora said the news did not mean it was time to ease pressure on North Korea. "Look forward to our Summit", Trump said in message on Twitter.
