Punggye-ri in Kilju County, North Hamgyong province, is North Korea's only known nuclear test site. But as my colleague Zack Beauchamp has reported, most experts think North Korea won't give up its bombs because the regime feels its nuclear arsenal is the only thing deterring countries, especially the U.S., from overthrowing it.
