N. Korea Expresses Intent to Join Int'l Efforts to Ban Nuke Testing

Ambassador Han made the announcement during the Conference on Disarmament, but notably did not specifically mention the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT), which is the treaty being worked on to ban all weapons testing.

Japan and the United States have urged North Korea to take specific actions under worldwide non-nuclear treaties.

The regime plans to close its nuclear test site next week.

According to researchers, the demolition began with the least-significant objects, and the more important buildings and structures remain in place.

"DPRK will further make peace efforts to achieve the development of inter-Korean relations, defuse acute military tensions and substantially remove the danger of war on the Korean peninsula", Han said.

Punggye-ri, in the north-east of the country, has been the site of all six of the North's nuclear tests, the latest and by far the most powerful in September previous year, which Pyongyang said was an H-bomb.

North Korea will join global efforts to ban nuclear weapons testing, an official from the regime has said, following an earlier pledge to halt all nuclear and ballistic missile tests. North Korea, India and Pakistan did not join the CTBT while the U.S., China, Egypt, Iran and Israel signed the agreement but did not ratify it.
