Pyongyang, May 25 (KCNA) -- The northern nuclear test ground of the DPRK was completely dismantled under a decision made at the Third Plenary Meeting of the Seventh Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea.

After the publication of the decision at the April plenary meeting of the WPK Central Committee on dismantling the nuclear test ground, relevant institutions including the Nuclear Weapons Institute of the DPRK immediately stopped all preparations and projects for nuclear tests and had carried out phased dismantlement.

The tunnels and all kinds of equipment, information communications and power systems and construction and operation equipment, that had been installed at the observation center, control center and research institute in the northern nuclear test ground, were dismantled and withdrawn.

A ceremony for completely dismantling the northern nuclear test ground of the DPRK was carried out on May 24.

The process of the dismantlement was covered in field by reporters from China, Russia, the U.S., Britain and south Korea.

The members of the international press corps were briefed on the methods and order of dismantlement of the test ground, and went round tunnels where nuclear tests had been carried out in the past, tunnels ready for immediately and safely conducting powerful nuclear tests and the test observation centers.

Then, a work for collapsing all tunnels of the nuclear test ground by means of explosion, shutting down their entrances and exploding all the ground structures including the test observation centers was carried out in order with transparency.

At the end of the work, the Nuclear Weapons Institute of the DPRK issued a statement on the spot.

The dismantlement of the nuclear test ground is a vivid manifestation of the DPRK government's fixed peace-loving stand to join in the international aspiration and efforts for total halt to the nuclear test and make positive contribution to building a nuclear free world. -0-
