Sítio de testes nucleares da Coreia do Norte
May 24, 2018 -- Um grupo de jornalistas internacionais partiu na quarta-feira de Wonsan, na Coreia do Norte, para assistir ao desmantelamento do sítio de testes nucleares de KimJong-un depois de oito jornalistas da Coreia do Sul receberem autorização de última hora para fazerem parte do grupo.
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.
