The North said it planned to invite journalists from the United States, South Korea, China, Russia and Britain to inspect the process. "Keep America Great", he said in IN to thunderous applause'.

He said he had "good" and "substantive" conversations with leader Kim Jong-un during his visit. "I really think he wants to do something", the president said.

The journalists will be provided with a charter flight from Beijing to the North Korean coastal city of Wonsan, from where they will travel by train to the test site, the statement said.
