North Korea claims to have destroyed its nuclear test site in huge explosion in front of foreign media
Officials from Kim Jong Un's regime destroyed tunnels, hills, and a wooden cabin at Punggye-ri. The mountain is believed to be the site of at least five nuclear tests carried out in the past. The event is meant to be a show of good will.
While North Korea's destruction of its test site is meant as a show of good will, it has been done in a particularly authoritarian way. South Korean journalists had been excluded from the trip until the last minute in protest over a US-South Korean military drill.
"The North will carry out additional nuclear tests and continue to push for the development of miniaturized, diversified nuclear warheads."
In September, North Korea tested a powerful nuclear weapon that experts say rocked the mountain and made it unstable.
A senior North Korean official reportedly said its threat to conduct the “strongest hydrogen bomb test over the Pacific Ocean” should be taken at face value.
"If North Korea does do an atmospheric test, it really does change the game."
