North Korea’s nuclear test site

May 24, 2018 -- A group of international journalists departed Wonsan in North Korea Wednesday to watch the dismantling of KimJong-un’s nuclear test site after eight reporters from South Korea received last-minute permission to join them.

The remote site deep in the mountains of the North’s sparsely populated northeast interior is expected to have a formal closing ceremony in the next day or two, depending on the weather.

The closing was announced by North Korean leader Kim Jong-un ahead of his planned summit with U.S. President Donald Trump, scheduled for June 12 in Singapore.

Pyongyang is allowing limited access to the site to publicise its promise to halt underground tests and launches of intercontinental ballistic missiles. However, the plan to show closure of the tunnel complex and command centre to journalists, and not international nuclear inspectors, has been raised as a matter of concern.

The North has conducted six underground tests at the site, including its most powerful ever, estimated at 120 kilotons -- about six-times the destructive power of the “Little Boy” bomb used by the U.S. on the Japanese city of Hiroshima in August 1945.
