Associated Press

TOKYO (AP) — Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida says he is arranging a trip to South Korea for talks with President Yoon Suk Yeol in return for his March visit to Tokyo. The May 7-8 visit aims to deepen ties before the upcoming summit of the Group of Seven industrialized nations hosted by Kishida. South Korea and Japan have been working to repair relations that were strained over wartime history disputes. The strengthening ties coincides with their deepening three-way security cooperation with the United States in response to growing threats from North Korea and China. Kishida will be the first Japanese leader to visit South Korea since 2018.
