North Korea Announces Closure of Nuclear Test Site; North and South Call for End to Korean War

Kim Jong Un, Jae-in say they’ll aim for ‘complete denuclearization’ and calling for a peace treaty to formally end the Korean War.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un told South Korean President Moon Jae-in Friday April 27, 2018 that he will close his main nuclear test site in May 2018 and invite experts and journalists from the United States and South Korea into the country soon, a senior spokesman for Moon said Sunday.

Kim made the announcements during his historic meeting on Friday with President Moon Jae-in at the demilitarized zone between North Korea and South Korea. Kim Jong UN walked over the line dividing the Korean Peninsula to meet with Moon Jae-in, the first time the leaders of North and South Korea have talked in person since 2007.

Following a full day of discussion and symbolic events, both leaders issued a statement calling for the end of the Korean War, committing to the “complete denuclearization” of the peninsula, and heralding a “new era of peace.”

Sunday’s announcement from Seoul came after US President Donald Trump suggested that his highly anticipated summit with Kim could come as soon as “the next three or four weeks.”
“Look, I may go in. It may not work out. I leave,” Trump announced during a rally in the US state of Michigan on Saturday night, as he skipped the White House Correspondents’ dinner at the Washington Hilton in Washington D.C. The White House Correspondents’ Dinner is traditionally held on the last Saturday evening in April.

Pyongyang, North Korea will also change its time zone by half an hour to align it with Seoul time, according to information obtained during a briefing Sunday.
