Kim also offered to make the dismantling public.

During their summit at a border truce village, Moon and Kim vaguely promised to work toward the "complete denuclearization" of the Korean Peninsula, but made no references to verification or timetables.

"A ceremony for dismantling the nuclear test ground is now scheduled between May 23 and 25, depending on weather condition", the official KCNA news agency said, citing a foreign ministry press release.

Punggye-ri has hosted all six of the North's nuclear tests, the latest and by far the most powerful in September a year ago, which Pyongyang said was an H-bomb.

Following the Moon-Kim summit, Moon's office said Kim was willing to disclose the process to worldwide experts, but the North's statement Saturday didn't include any mention about allowing experts on the site.

The test tunnels would be blown up, blocking their entries, the statement said.

Taking apart North Korea's nuclear weapons testing site will entail closing down tunnels housing explosives, shutting out entrances and taking apart buildings with research and observation facilities, as well as security stands.

"In parallel with dismantlement of the nuclear test ground, guards and researchers will be withdrawn and the surrounding area of the test ground be completely closed", the statement said.

Images of Kim and Moon shaking hands in late April were seen around the world and now tourists are doing their best to reenact the meeting at a replica of Korea's Truce Village, which is located at a movie set not far from Seoul, the South Korean capital.

But the phrase is a diplomatic euphemism open to interpretation on both sides. In another sign of improving relations, North Korea this week released three US citizens who had been imprisoned in the country.

Pompeo added, by "fully", it would mean to ensure Pyongyang doesn't possess the capacity to threaten the USA or the world with nuclear weapons.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo Friday promised the U.S. would work to rebuild North Korea's sanctions-crippled economy if it agreed to surrender its nuclear arsenal.
