The display at Punggye-ri, in the northwest of the country, will be another step in leader Kim Jong Un's charm offensive, with a ceremony scheduled between May 23-25.

North Korea announced at a ruling party meeting last month that it was suspending all tests of nuclear devices and ICBMs, as well as the plan to close the nuclear testing ground.

North Korea has announced it will hold a ceremony in late May for the dismantling of its nuclear test site.

Dialogue brokered by Seoul has seen US-North Korea relations go from trading personal insults and threats of war a year ago to a summit between Kim and President Donald Trump due in Singapore on June 12.

According to the South Korean presidential office, Kim told Moon that reports that tunnels at the Punggye-ri site had collapsed - making it unusable - were not true.

Kim declared his nuclear force as complete in December, following North Korea's most powerful nuclear test to date in September and three flight tests of ICBMs created to reach the USA mainland.

Until recently, the two leaders were trading personal insults, with Mr Trump vowing to "completely destroy" North Korea in the face of nuclear threat. "Conversations that involved deep complex problems, challenges; the strategic decision that Chairman Kim has before him about how it is he wishes to proceed and if he is prepared, in exchange for the assurances we are ready to provide to him, if he is prepared to fully denuclearize". The Seoul-Washington summit is now expected to be instrumental in preparing for successful talks between Trump and Kim.

Pompeo said the only way to achieve that is through a "robust verification program".

The news came as Mike Pompeo, the USA secretary of state, said America was prepared to help the regime boom economically if it denuclearises.

Earlier this month, North Korean officials asked to start an air route between the Pyongyang and Incheon, South Korea, airspace regions. "A lot of very good things have happened", Trump said as he greeted the three former prisoners at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland. "I really think a lot of progress has been made".
