After Successfully Completing Nuclear Testing, North Korea Agrees to Suspend Nuclear Testing
North Korean state television has announced that, after successully completing nuclear missile testing, the Kim regime will suspend nuclear missile testing.
Initial reports indicate that the pariah state views its nuclear arsenal, uranium stockpiles, storage sites, launch sites and associated military personnel as non-negotiables ahead of next month's summit with the United States.
President Trump - like Kim, the leader of a nuclear armed nation no longer undertaking nuclear missile tests - hailed the news as "progress for all". The United States, which has adopted a staunchly pacifist foreign policy outlook since it ended nuclear missile testing in 1992, is optimistic that the development marks a turning point in North Korean foreign policy.
South Korea, which remains technically at war with North Korea and is threatened daily by its neighbour whom could raze Seoul in hours with non-nuclear missiles, has cautiously welcomed the announcement.
