Trudeau welcomes North Korea's nuclear testing freeze

North Korea freezes missile, nuclear tests; world hails move

During an extraordinary plenary session of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, the DPRK's top leader, Kim Jong-un, announced on the eve of the cessation of nuclear and intercontinental missile tests, as well as the closure of the nuclear test center from the base of Punggye-ri.

He said he has to wait and see what Pyongyang will say in its upcoming summits with Seoul and Washington.

This also comes just weeks before a meeting between current United States President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un, seeming as if the leader of North Korea seeks diplomacy with the world at large. But North Korea for decades has always been pushing a idea of "denuclearization" that bears no similarity for the American significance, vowing to go after atomic development until Washington prevents its troops out of the peninsula.

Stating that the northern test area has completed its mission, Kim said that under the proven condition of complete nuclear weapons, the country no longer needs any nuclear tests, mid-range and intercontinental ballistic rocket tests, reported KCNA.

The proposed summit followed months of rising tension between the two countries over North Korea's refusal to stop ballistic tests.

North Korea is known to use this graphite in creation of nuclear reactors and has also reportedly attempted to sell the material to overseas buyers.

Jimmy Fallon pays tribute to Tina Fey
Fey then promised Fallon he'll "be the first to know" about an official revival once she finally nails down a concept. "What? ... I met you when I was 23, I believe you were 45. "I must be so thirsty for internet attention [that] I was like, 'Maybe'".

Using the acronym for North Korea's official name, it said the North would "never use nuclear weapons nor transfer nuclear weapons or nuclear technology under any circumstances unless there are nuclear threats and nuclear provocation against the DPRK".

"If I think that it's a meeting that is not going to be fruitful, we're not going to go", Mr Trump said.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said Saturday that China welcomes the DPRK's suspension of its nuclear and missile tests and supports the DPRK in solving the concerns of relevant parties through dialogue and hopes it could make achievements in economic development. Both countries have been pushing Pyongyang to denuclearise.

He reiterated the commitment and support of the United Nations system in that endeavor and wished successes to the leaders of the two Koreas in 'their fearless and important task of resuming a honest dialogue'.

Kim is due to meet his South Korean counterpart Moon Jae-in on April 27 for the first inter-Korean summit in over a decade, and Trump by June.
