Invited foreign journalists are en route to view the closing of the Punggye-ri nuclear test site, scheduled to happen between Wednesday and Friday, depending on weather. This is on the country's east coast and as you can see back over here this is a massive and modern airport.

The reporters that flew into Wonsan to cover the event were from the United States' CNN and CBS, the U.K.'s APTN and Sky News, China's CCTV and Xinhua News Agency and Russia's RT and RIA Novosti.

"I suspect President Trump has some tough questions for President Moon that he'd prefer to ask privately, given the lack of clarity on what the North Koreans will agree to - and the latest chess move by the North Koreans to threaten to cancel the June 12 summit", said Jean Lee, the Korea Center program director at the Wilson Center.

"The Government reiterates that the goal of the "Panmunjeom Declaration" adopted between leaders of the South and the North, is to end confrontations and hostilities of the past, and move toward a new era of reconciliation, peace and prosperity by fulfilling all inter-Korean agreements", the statement continued.

The Punggye-ri site is where North Korea carried out all six of its nuclear weapon tests, including the most powerful one last September.

Isolated North Korea's offer to scrap the test site was seen as a key concession in months of easing tension between Pyongyang and its long-time bitter rivals, South Korea and the United States.

"What kind of democracy is that if, on the one hand, Pyongyang and Seoul try to speak about dialogue and cooperation but on the other hand, drills take place aimed at destroying North Korea".

A group of foreign journalists excluding those from the South headed for the North via a chartered flight from China earlier in the day. In the second May 16 statement, North Korea said that Bolton's demands are a threat to North Korea's safety and that it's not interested in "unilateral nuclear abandonment". Yoon said Moon told Trump that the North Korean leader was strongly committed to the meeting and the leaders agreed that any assistance to North Korea would come after complete denuclearization.

"The North Koreans delayed it but when the need arises, they will resume dialogue with the South, though now they are teaching them and others a lesson", the expert noted. Thus this is an unprecedented set of negotiations for the U.S. It's also the type of negotiation North Korea had requested for decades - a meeting of their leader with the U.S. President, claiming that all issues could then be resolved expeditiously.

"Specialists must be dispatched to the site to collect samples from past tests and analyze them to determine explosive power and materials used", Albright told the Mainichi Shimbun. CBS News is the only US broadcast network in North Korea to witness the shutdown of the Punggye-ri site in the northeast of the coutry. "They must know what price they will be made to pay". Yet the USA has publicized unreasonable demands that North Korea is unlikely to accept.

South Korea anxious about Kim's bellicose weapons testing and Trump's similarly bellicose warnings about a looming war, was instrumental in convincing the two Cold War foes to sit down and talk.

Indeed, when NATO launched its air war against Libya in 2011, a North Korean official said it showed that Gadhafi had been duped in the 2003 nuclear bargain with the West.
