Trudeau welcomes North Korea's nuclear testing freeze

North Korea Announces To Stop Nuclear Tests: A Timeline Of Events Kim Jong Un announces 'discontinuance' of nuclear, missile tests

North Korea's sudden diplomatic outreach in recent months came following a flurry of weapons tests, including the underground detonation of a potential thermonuclear warhead along with three slips of cerebral intercontinental ballistic missiles developed to strike the US mainland.

ROK's presidential office said the DPRK's decision signified "meaningful" progress toward denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and would create favorable conditions for upcoming meetings.

In an earlier statement released by his office, Guterres wished the two Koreas ahead of their April 27 summit "every success in their courageous and important task of resuming honest dialogue leading to sustainable peace on the Korean Peninsula".

Having built a formidable nuclear arsenal to consolidate his regime North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has asked for the suspension of further nuclear and ballistic missile tests, stating that its quest for such weapons is now "complete".

Kim recalled that at the end of 2017, the Asian country completed its nuclear program and that since then, the worldwide situation has changed in a favorable way for that nation.

The move is ahead of a summit between leaders of the North and South Koreas this week.

He says: "What is crucial here, however, is how this development is going to lead to the complete, verifiable and irreversible dismantlement of nuclear arms, weapons of mass destruction and missiles".

At the ruling Worker's Party meeting on Friday, Kim was reported as saying, "Our decision to suspend nuclear tests is part of the world's important steps for nuclear disarmament and our republic will join global efforts to completely suspend nuclear tests".

China, North Korea's main ally, welcomed Pyongyang's decision.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will meet South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Friday. North Koreans are extremely cautious when speaking to the media, but Son told The Associated Press that the news made him feel the "future road will be brighter and prosperous".

Trump has tweeted, "This is very good news for North Korea and the World" and "big progress!"

The thawing of relations between the DPRK and the ROK started with Kim's New Year speech, where he said that his country was "a peace-loving and responsible nuclear power", and called for lower military tension and improved ties with the ROK.

If the summit happens, Trump will be the first sitting United States president to meet a DPRK leader.

The CIA refused to comment on the nature of the building, which has raised questions about the legitimacy of Pyongyang's promise to denuclearisation. "Look forward to our Summit".
