Not even close - all they are saying is 'now that we have proven our nuclear and ICMB capabilites, we no loinger need to "test them".

Kim said Saturday that "under the proven condition of complete nuclear weapons, we no longer need any nuclear tests, mid-range and intercontinental ballistic rocket tests, and that the nuclear test site in northern area has also completed its mission," as quoted by KCNA.
While a step - its nowhere close to allowing inspectors in or dropping the nuclear ambitions on whole - just saying "we dont need to test".
