PYONGYANG, May 28 (Xinhua) -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) said Monday its dismantlement of the Punggye Ri nuclear test site last week has shown its will to work for a nuclear-free world.
The official Rodong Sinmun said Monday in a commentary stated that the positive measures taken by the DPRK for the dismantlement of the nuclear test ground have "evoked a tremendous response from the world."
It said that by inviting international media to cover the event, the DPRK has shown transparency in stopping nuclear tests.
"The DPRK is advancing along the path taken by itself according to its timetable no matter whatever others may say and wherever wind may blow from," it said.
The ruling Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) said last month in a plenary session that DPRK would halt its nuclear and missile tests and concentrate all its efforts on economic construction to improve the lives of its people.
"The whole course of dismantling the northern nuclear test ground eloquently proves the DPRK government's unshakable peace-loving stand to join the aspiration and efforts of the international community for a total stop to nuclear tests," said the newspaper of the WPK.
DPRK dismantled the Punggye Ri nuclear test site last week and it invited foreign journalists to cover the event.
