Scientists, technicians, workers and officials behind the February 12 test will visit the capital as the guests of the ruling Workers' Party, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said.
“They will spend significant days in Pyongyang, enjoying the greatest privileges and preferential treatment,” KCNA said, promising a “joyful and delightful time” at the city's open-air ice rink and roller skating center.
The group will also visit the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun, which holds the embalmed bodies of North Korea's founder Kim Il Sung and his son and former leader Kim Jong Il.
North Korea's third nuclear test was its most powerful to date, with Pyongyang claiming a breakthrough with a “miniaturized” device.
