Japan pushes back on plan to add South Korea to G7

By WANG XU in Tokyo | CHINA DAILY | Updated: 2020-06-30 00:00

Japan has opposed changes to the Group of Seven nations as it pushes back on a proposal by United States President Donald Trump that would have the Republic of Korea join in an expanded summit later this year.

Tokyo had told Washington that it stood against the participation of the ROK in the G7 summit because it and Seoul had different policies on China and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, Kyodo News reported, citing unidentified sources related to Japanese and US diplomacy.

Echoing the report, Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga on Monday told reporters: "It is important to maintain the G7 framework as it is."
