"A ceremony for dismantling the nuclear test ground is now scheduled between May 23 and 25, depending on weather condition", the official KCNA news agency said, citing a foreign ministry press release.

Ojea Quintana urged North Korea to release the six South Korean prisoners, who include three pastors.

"The next few weeks will be critical, requiring air-tight coordination between our two countries", Kang said, noting that South Korean President Moon Jae-in would be in Washington to see Mr. Trump later this month.

The summit will be the first meeting ever between a sitting U.S. president and the leader of North Korea.
