North Korea has scheduled a “ceremony” to dismantle its nuclear testing site on May 23-25 ahead of President Donald Trump’s summit with leader Kim Jong Un next month, state media said Saturday.

North Korea’s Foreign Ministry said Saturday that all the tunnels at the country’s northeastern testing ground will be destroyed by explosion and that observation and research facilities and ground-based testing units will also be removed. The dramatic and symbolic event is part of the Hermit Kingdom’s pledge to discontinue nuclear tests.

Ha! Tell me you really didn't fall for this ploy, or has Barnum been proven right yet again?

North Korea's testing site is unusable as previous tests have made the underground unstable. He is collaping the underground site for safety reasons. It's already unusable. Trump is being played by Kim (again).

Yep.

From the article:

Analysts say the closure of the site is mostly symbolic and doesn't represent a material step toward denuclearization.
