North Korea plans to dismantle its nuclear testing facility, as it pledged, between May 23 and 25 based on the weather, its central news agency announced on Saturday.
North Korea announced Saturday it is taking "technical measures" to dismantle its northern nuclear test site, moving closer to honoring an offer made by its leader Kim Jong-un during the inter-Korean summit last month.
Reporters from China, Russia, the United States, Britain and South Korea would be allowed to cover the event on site to show it "in a transparent manner".
All worldwide journalists will be provided with a charter flight into Wonsan, a port city in eastern North Korea, from Beijing, KCNA said.
Stanley Cup Playoffs: Capitals beat Lightning in Game 1
Boston beat Tampa Bay, 6-2, in the opener of its second-round series before the Lightning bounced back to win four straight. Alex Ovechkin leads Washington with nine goals, Nicklas Backstrom has 10 assists and Evgeny Kuznetsov has 45 shots on goal.
The test tunnels would be blown up, blocking their entries, the statement said.
North Korea has declared its nuclear forces complete late previous year after its most powerful nuclear test to date in September and the launches of intercontinental ballistic missiles that experts say are capable of hitting most, if not all, of the continental United States.
Kim has expressed a commitment to the "complete denuclearization" of the Korean Peninsula, although there are still questions about his sincerity given North Korea's tendency to fail to follow through on its commitments.
Three US prisoners were returned to Washington by Pyongyang last week, with Trump saying the "denuclearisation of North Korea would be his proudest achievement".

The duo had made a history between them-scoring a record 1,000 goals for their respective clubs in all completions. Real Madrid , meanwhile, are in third and still have the Champions League final with Liverpool to look forward to.
At last month's inter-Korean summit, Kim also told Moon that he would shutter the site and invite foreign experts and journalists to view the dismantling, South Korea's presidential office said.
Until recently, Mr Kim and Mr Trump had been trading personal insults and threats, heightening tensions over North Korea's nuclear programme. North Korea has conducted six nuclear tests at this site. For instance, Kim's father Kim Jong Il invited foreign journalists to watch the destruction of a cooling tower at the Yongbyon reactor, where the North produced plutonium, in the summer of 2008.
The announcement comes days after Washington announced that the historic summit between Kim and U.S. President Donald Trump will be held June 12 in Singapore.
Not only was it later revealed North Korea was secretly enriching uranium, but the rogue nation conducted its second nuclear test less than one year later in May 2009.
