North Korea has set the date to begin shutting down a major nuclear test site as it continues to pursue improved relations with the world, earning thanks on Twitter from U.S. President Donald Trump for “a very smart and gracious gesture!”

A ceremony will be held between May 23 and May 25 for the dismantling of North Korea’s northern nuclear test ground, weather permitting, the state-run Korean Central News Agency said Saturday, quoting the Foreign Ministry.
