Dismantling of North Korea nuclear site 'well under way': United States monitor

´╗┐US ready to offer North Korea security assurances, investment: Pompeo

But an analysis by 38 North, a North Korea-focused US website, said commercial imagery taken last week shows that several operational support buildings have been razed and rails for mining carts have apparently been removed.

U.S. researchers say North Korea has already begun dismantling its Punggye-ri nuclear test site in the country's northeast.

US researchers say recent satellite imagery shows that North Korea has begun dismantling facilities at its nuclear test site.

But both countries have been on charm offensives ahead of the summit June 12 in Singapore between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un, the first ever between a sitting United States president and a North Korean leader.

Dialogue brokered by South Korea has seen US-North Korea relations go from trading personal insults and threats of war past year to a summit between Kim and Trump which will be held in Singapore on 12 June.

Donald Trump has praised North Korea's decision to dismantle its nuclear test site, calling it a "very smart and gracious gesture".

In the message, the North invited four reporters each from a South Korean news agency and a broadcasting company for the event that will take place next Wednesday to Friday. He did not specify what the military has seen.

After last pact between North Korea and United States, Pyongyang destroyed in 2007 cooling tower of Yongbyon nuclear power plant, where plutonium has been manufactured for its bombs.

It will mark the first summit between a sitting USA president and a North Korean leader. Ors simply speculate that base was unusable after last and most potent nuclear test last September.

The dismantling of the mountainous complex, which has been the site of all six nuclear tests conducted by North Korea since 2006, is part of its promise to stop nuclear and intercontinental ballistic missile tests ahead of the first-ever U.S.

White House National Security Adviser John Bolton said on CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday that North Korea's future could be "unbelievably strong" if it follows through on its commitment to denuclearize.

The objective of the new buildings at the Yongbyon Nuclear Scientific Research Centre was unknown, 38 North has said, with "no observable signs that initial reactor operations are imminent".

Pyongyang said last week it would dismantle the site on May 23-25.

North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un (L) and South Korea's President Moon Jae-in (R) exchange documents during a signing ceremony near the end of their historic summit at the truce village of Panmunjom on April 27, 2018. The discussions may also include setting up working-level talks between the countries' sports officials over plans to field combined teams in certain sports at the Asian Games in August.
