  • North Korea to hold 'ceremony' for dismantling its nuclear test site on May 23-25

A day earlier, Trump announced that his meeting with Kim will be held on June 12 in Singapore.

Pyongyang announced its withdrawal from the Pact, which prohibits the proliferation of nuclear weapons in 2003.

The ceremony precedes a summit that will take place with Donald Trump in June.

Donald Trump tweeted saying "Thank you, a very smart and gracious gesture!"

The closure of Punggye-ri is regarded as an important step toward denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula, but North Korea has yet to clarify whether to give up its existing nuclear weapons, although Washington has urged North Korea to do so.

Johnson started his round on the back nine and ran off six birdies in an eight-hole stretch beginning at the par-five 11th. Also at 67 was Keith Mitchell, who only got into the tournament Wednesday when Paul Casey had to withdraw with an injury.

North Korea will begin dismantling its nuclear test site in less than two weeks in a ceremony attended by foreign journalists.

The announcement also says journalists from China, Russia, the United States, the United Kingdom and South Korea will be allowed to cover the dismantling, to ensure the transparency of the process. The exact date of the closure will depend on weather conditions, the agency said.

The unilateral measure was made public during the Third Plenary Session of the 7th Period of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of North Korea, held last month.

In April, South Korean officials said Mr Kim had stated he "would carry out the closing of the nuclear test site in May", adding that nuclear experts from South Korea and the U.S. would be invited to watch.

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.

The newspaper said the Punggye-ri site, situated near Mount Mantap in northeastern North Korea, was "wrecked" beyond fix by a landslide.

Trump and South Korea's President are due to meet on May 22 at the White House.

All observation facilities, research buildings and security posts will also be removed. From there, journalists will board a charter train to the test site.

North Korea's pledge no longer to carry out unannounced missile tests or other activities that put flights at risk may be seen as the latest sign that the isolated nation is prepared to engage with the world.
