TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan’s government spokesman Yoshihide Suga said on Monday that it is crucial to maintain the current G7 framework.

At a regular media briefing, Suga did not confirm the content of a Kyodo news agency report which said Japan opposed South Korea potentially joining the next meeting.

U.S. President Donald Trump in May announced he would postpone a Group of Seven summit and expand the list of invitees to include Australia, Russia, South Korea and India.
