South Korean President Moon Jae-in will travel to Pyongyang in September to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, reports the AP.

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.

Progress with North Korea stalled over Korean War declaration

Before talks with North Korea can progress, the U.S. must officially declare the Korean War over, the New York Times' David Sanger and William Broad report.

The big picture: While President Trump has maintained that his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un was a success, according to the Times, the regime is refusing to provide documents of its nuclear weapons, stockpiles, and production sites.
