Seoul says North Korean leader Kim Jong Un plans to shut down the country’s nuclear test site in May and reveal the process to experts and journalists from the United States and South Korea.
Seoul’s presidential spokesman Yoon Young-chan said Sunday Kim made the comments during his summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Friday.
Yoon says Kim also said President Donald Trump will learn he’s ‘not a person’ to fire missiles toward the United States.
The Kim-Trump meeting is anticipated in May or June.

Yoon says North Korea also plans to re-adjust its current time zone to match the South’s.
The North in 2015 created its own ‘Pyongyang Time’ by setting the clock 30 minutes behind the South.
The announcement came just hours after Trump took credit for the progression in the peace talks during a summit in Michigan.
Shouts of ‘Nobel, Nobel’ – a reference to the Nobel Peace Prize – met his claim to have engineered Friday’s historic summit between Kim Jong-un and President Moon Jae-in.
‘I had one of the fake news groups this morning. They were saying, “what do you think President Trump had to do with it?” Trump said. ‘I’ll tell you what. Like, how about everything?’
The President added that his South Korean counterpart had thanked him for making the summit possible in a phone call on Saturday.
