The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) has confirmed the demolition of its nuclear test site at Punggye-RI on Thursday, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said.
KCNA reported that all the tunnels have been collapsed by explosions and their entrances completely closed.
The Nuclear Weapons Institute of the DPRK issued a statement, saying that a ceremony was held for completely dismantling of the northern nuclear test ground, to ensure transparency of the discontinuance of nuclear tests.
“Dismantling the nuclear test ground was done in such a way as to make all the tunnels of the test ground collapse by an explosion and completely close the tunnel entrances.
“At the same time, it was to explode some guard facilities and observation posts on the site,’’ the statement said
