North Korean leader Kim Jong Un announced Friday that his country will be suspending missile testing and closing a nuclear test site, several reports said.
“From April 21, North Korea will stop nuclear tests and launches of intercontinental ballistic missiles,” the Korean Central News Agency said, according to Yonhap News. “The North will shut down a nuclear test site in the country’s northern side to prove the vow to suspend nuclear test.”
The announcement comes amid preparations for a meeting later this year between President Trump and the North Korean dictator. During the summit, Trump said he expected to talk with Kim about denuclearizing the hermit kingdom.
North Korea has agreed to suspend all Nuclear Tests and close up a major test site. This is very good news for North Korea and the World – big progress! Look forward to our Summit.

……Mike Pompeo met with Kim Jong Un in North Korea last week.
However, Trump told reporters on Wednesday that he would walk away from talks with Kim if he thought they were “not going to be fruitful.”
“I hope to have a very successful meeting,” Trump said during a joint news conference alongside Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. “If we don’t think it’s going to be successful, we won’t have it. If I think it’s a meeting that is not going to be fruitful, we’re not going to go. If the meeting when I’m there is not fruitful, I will respectfully leave the meeting.”
North Korea’s decision Friday was made in a meeting of the ruling party’s Central Committee, during which Kim, according to the Korean Central News Agency, said, “Nuclear development has proceeded scientifically and in due order and the development of the delivery strike means also proceeded scientifically and verified the completion of nuclear weapons.
“We no longer need any nuclear test or test launches of intermediate and intercontinental range ballistics missiles and because of this the northern nuclear test site has finished its mission,” he said.
Therein lies the problem. They may ‘cease’ operations but the North Korean gargoyle has already accomplished what he wanted so far—completion of tests that reflect his ability to be a nuclear threat.
After 8 years of B. Hussein Obama’s foreign policy, including his chickenshit approach to North Korea, it’s good to have a real leader in office who won’t back down or take shit from communist thugs.
Caveat: I wouldn’t trust Fatty the Third as far as I could throw him.
