Envoy: North Korea Will Join Effort to Ban All Nuclear Tests

Envoy: North Korea Will Join Effort to Ban All Nuclear Tests”

North Korea last conducted a weapons test previous year, and intends to dismantle its only test site later this month.

Some observers believe that Han's remark suggests that the North offered to be part of the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) ahead of its summit with the USA slated for next month.

Japan and the United States have urged North Korea to take specific actions under global non-nuclear treaties.

"This remark is significant as a further indication that the DPRK really does have no intention to test again", a North Korea expert with diplomatic experience who wished to remain anonymous told NK News.

The CTBT is a multilateral treaty that bans all nuclear tests, for both civilian and military purposes. North Korean authorities have promised to demolish its nuclear test site in the period from 23 to 25 may, depending on weather conditions.

"Discontinuation of nuclear tests and follow up measures are an important process for global disarmament and DPRK will join worldwide disarmament efforts for a total ban on nuclear tests", Han told the disarmament forum, using his country's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Kim and U.S. President Donald Trump are set to sit down and discuss North Korea's denuclearization on June 12 in Singapore, Trump revealed last week.
