South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol is slated to visit Japan for three days from next Friday to attend the Group of Seven summit in Hiroshima as a guest, his office said.

During his stay in Hiroshima, Yoon is set to hold trilateral talks with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and U.S. President Joe Biden to confirm cooperation in addressing North Korea's missile and nuclear development, the office said Sunday.

Since Seoul in early March proposed a solution to a wartime labor compensation dispute that had escalated bilateral tensions, Japan-South Korea ties have been improving, prompting the two countries to agree on resuming reciprocal visits by their leaders.

Yoon, who took office in May 2022, visited Japan in mid-March, while Kishida earlier this month made his first trip to South Korea since becoming prime minister in October 2021. Such reciprocal visits had been suspended since 2011.

Kishida is scheduled to host the three-day G-7 summit through next Sunday. South Korea is not a member of the grouping.
