"Thank you, very smart and kind gesture!", - trump wrote in his Twitter.

South Korea had no immediate response to the statement. However, a final attempt by Bush to complete an agreement to fully dismantle North Korea's nuclear weapons program collapsed that December when the North refused to accept US-proposed verification methods.

Journalists applying to cover the event will be limited to citizens of China, Russia, the United States, the United Kingdom, and South Korea, due to the remote and diminutive nature of the site. The exact date of the closure will depend on weather conditions, the agency said. North Korea will be "opening territorial airspace" to welcome the reporters.

"If North Korea takes bold action to quickly denuclearize, the United States is prepared to work with North Korea to achieve prosperity on the par with our South Korean friends", Pompeo said.

In the future, North Korea will "promote close contacts and dialogue with the neighboring countries and the global society so as to safeguard peace and stability on the Korean peninsula and over the globe", the ministry was quoted as saying by KCNA.

North Korea's six known nuclear tests have taken place in Punggye-ri, a location in the north-eastern part of North Korea where a system of tunnels has been dug under Mount Mantap.

The Trailer For The Predator Is Here
Directed by Shane Black (" Iron Man 3 "), " The Predator " is scheduled for a September 12 release in the Philippines. The new film stars Alfie Allen , Keegan-Michael Key , Olivia Munn , Sterling K.

Officials in Seoul had said in April that North Korea planned to invite experts and journalists from the USA and South Korea for the shutdown of its test site.

Trump announced Thursday that he will meet the North Korean leader in Singapore on June 12. Jeffrey Lewis, of the Middlebury Institute for International Studies, expected that the North "will sanitise the site before letting anyone see it".

In November, North Korea boasted that it had developed a missile capable of striking the whole U.S. mainland. "So, it's a good confidence building measure, but not necessarily a sign of irreversible disarmament".

Kim a year ago oversaw a string of missile and nuclear tests, drawing the ire of the global community.

The incident happened following the September 3, 2017 detonation of a nuclear bomb estimated at around 100 kilotons, which is 10 times stronger than any of the previous five tests conducted by North Korea.
