South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un will meet in Pyongyang from September 18-20 to discuss "complete denuclearization," the Associated Press reports, citing the South Korean government.

Why it matters: Despite the easing of tensions between the rival Koreas, Kim Jong-un has refused to provide documents related to his country's nuclear weapons, stalling any further progress in talks between North Korea and the United States. Most recently, President Trump cancelled Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's trip to North Korea last month, saying the country was not "making sufficient progress with respect to denuclearization."

The details: According to the AP, a senior South Korean presidential official told reporters that when he met Kim in Pyongyang on Wednesday, the North Korean leader reaffirmed his "firm resolve" to realize denuclearization.

  • The official said the Tongchang-ri rocket site would be dismantled implying that there would not be any further long-range missile testing, citing his conversation with Kim. He added that North Korea's nuclear testing site, Punggye-ri, had been completely dismantled meaning the country's nuclear testing is over.

Roger Stone told Axios in a phone interview that he plans to write and speak for President Trump's re-election now that Stone "won't die in a squalid hellhole of corona-19 virus."

"I'm asthmatic," said Stone, 67. "Sending me to a prison where I could not be socially distanced ... would, I think, be a death sentence."
