Sorry carewemust but we've seen it several times before , most recently under the Obama administration when Kim first took power.
North Korea announced on Wednesday that it would suspend its nuclear weapons tests and uranium enrichment and allow international inspectors to monitor activities at its main nuclear complex.
The surprise announcement raised the possibility of ending a diplomatic impasse that has allowed the country’s nuclear program to continue for years without international oversight.
The Obama administration called the steps “important, if limited.” But the announcement seemed to signal that North Korea’s new leader, Kim Jong-un, is at least willing to consider a return to negotiations and to engage with the United States, which pledged in exchange to ship tons of food aid to the isolated, impoverished nation.
No doubt sanctions are having an effect and Kim wants an easing of them but I would caution against thinking his latest move is anything more than his next move in this chess game , the proof of the pudding will come when the two meet face to face.

Kim Jong is making a SURPRISE visit to CHINA. First time he's left North Korea since taking power there.
Something's in the works.
