North Korea says it will dismantle nuclear test site next month: report

  North Korea says it will dismantle nuclear test site next month: report North Korea is planning to shutter a nuclear test site in May ahead of a highly anticipated meeting between its leader Kim Jong Un and President Trump. Pyongyang is also expected to reveal the process of dismantling the site to the U.S. and South Korea, The Associated Press reported Saturday.
