North Korea appears to be dismantling its nuclear test site at Punggye-ri. Foreign journalists, but not inspectors, have been invited to observe the closing. A spectacle, but not much more? A look at the world's only known active nuclear test site.
North Korea agreed to abolish key missile facilities and close its main nuclear site. Kim Jong Un promised to visit Seoul soon – it would be a North Korean leader's first trip to the South's capital since 1945.
North Korea has not stopped its nuclear and missile programs, violating sanctions, a confidential UN report details. It also alleges Pyongyang enlisted a Syrian arms broker to sell weapons to Yemen, Libya and Sudan.
South Korea is trying to transform improved relations on the Korean Peninsula into practical policies. But the same old basic problems remain, writes Peter Sturm of the newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.
South Korea has said Pyongyang has promised to close its nuclear testing site next month in the presence of US experts. The pledge follows last week's historic inter-Korean summit.
