    Chinese want the US to keep quiet about their newly found dictatorship, so they are getting the Norks in line for them.

    Seoul: North Korea says it has suspended nuclear and long-range missile tests and plans to close its nuclear test site.

    The North's official Korean Central News Agency said the suspension of nuclear and ICBM tests went into effect Saturday.

    The country says it's making the move to shift its national focus and improve its economy.

    This came out of a meeting of the central committee of the ruling Worker's Party of Korea held Friday to discuss policy issues related to "a new stage" in a "historic" period.

    "The North will shut down a nuclear test site in the country's northern side to prove the vow to suspend nuclear test," KCNA reported.

    The announcements came days before North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is set to meet South Korean President Moon Jae-in in a border truce village for a rare summit aimed at resolving the nuclear standoff with Pyongyang.


    The North's decisions were made in a meeting of the ruling party's full Central Committee which had convened to discuss a "new stage" of policies.

    It was probably an old site anyway that is now worthless to the NK, but let's all booooooo Trump anyway, just to be sure.

    It is a positive step.

    Lets hope it doesn't turn out like the promise in 2006 to dismantle their nuclear program.

    Why should be either boo or cheer Trump? This looks to be an initiative mainly/from NK themselves, possibly aided by dialogue with the South. Trump hasn’t actually don’t anything apart from tweet.

    Seeing as the other thread has largely become about the crackdowns in the Gaza and Ramallah Bantustans I thought I'd resurrect this one.

    Huh.

    Could it be possible North Korea is just being a massive dick again?

    Do you blame him ?

    The whole thread basically goes like this.

    North K do something bad. Trumps fault cause he is a big meanie and gives meanie speeches.

    Nth K do something good. They would have done that anyway, nothing to do with anything Trump has done.

    Well if Kim had been the coach instead of Browny maybe Trenty would have had a nuclear mountain dropped on him when he got bitchslapped.
