    Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida on Monday invited President Yoon Suk-yeol to the G7 Summit in Hiroshima in May.
    Presidential spokesman Lee Do-woon told reporters that the invitation is seen as a "positive outcome of the Korea-Japan summit" last week in Tokyo.
    Korea, Japan and the U.S. are apparently in talks to hold a three-way summit on the sidelines of the G7 meeting.
    Kishida, who is visiting New Delhi, said the leaders of Korea, Australia, Brazil, Indonesia, Morocco, Vietnam, and the Cook Islands as well as the heads of the International Monetary Fund and OECD have been invited to the G7 Summit.
    Foreign Ministry spokesman Lim Soo-suk said, "Through our government's participation in the G7 Summit, we expect to expand solidarity and cooperation with member countries that share universal values and to take part in efforts to resolve the complex and unprecedented global crisis."
