North Korea claims to stop Nuclear and missiles testing

North Korea immediately suspends testing of nuclear weapons and missiles, destroys the nuclear test station, and instead seeks economic growth and peace, North state media said ahead of planned summits with South Korea and the United States.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said his country no longer needs to perform nuclear tests or intercontinental ballistic missile tests because it has completed its goal of developing nuclear weapons, the Korean Central Intelligence Agency (KCNA) said.

North Korea said that creating an “international environment favorable to its economy” would facilitate close contact and active dialogue with neighboring countries and the international community.

It was the first time Kim had directly addressed his attitude to North Korea’s nuclear weapons programs ahead of planned summits with South Korean President Moon Jaein next week and with US President Donald Trumpe in late May or early June.

The commitment to stop the development of nuclear weapons, initiated by his grandfather and continued by his father, would represent a significant turnaround for a young third-generation leader, now 34, who spent his safety on his nuclear arsenal and spent years celebrating these weapons is an integral part of the legitimacy and power of his regime .

Testing the freeze and determination to close the test site alone will not meet Washington’s demand that Pyongyang completely dismantle all of its nuclear weapons and missiles.

Announcing concessions now, rather than during summit meetings, shows that Kim has serious talks on nuclear weapons elimination, experts say.
