Trudeau set to make first official visit to South Korea on Asia trip

Canada Global (Web News) The G7 leaders’ meeting will be held in Japan, and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will travel there for a week. During that time, he will make his first official visit to South Korea.

The voyage takes place at a time when the entire world is dealing with increased economic instability and security risks as a result of climate change.

After visiting Ottawa in the autumn, South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol is scheduled to visit Seoul between May 16 and May 18. Since then, both nations have unveiled their Indo-Pacific policies, which seek to balance out Chinese power in the region by strengthening commercial and military connections.

Trudeau will also be present for the G7 summit, which will take place in Hiroshima, Japan, from May 19 to 21.

As the G7 host, Japan claims it made the decision to hold the summit at Hiroshima to represent its “commitment to peace” at a time when the threat of WMDs is on the rise and the war in Ukraine is still going on.

On August 6, 1945, the United States unleashed the first atomic bomb, obliterating Hiroshima and killing 140,000 people. Three days later, a second bomb was detonated on Nagasaki, killing an additional 70,000 people.

Trudeau is scheduled to be present in Seoul for the opening ceremony of the Kapyong Battle Commemorative Trail, which honours Canada’s participation to the Korean War.

The demilitarised zone separating North and South Korea is not likely to be visited by him.

Each year, the leaders of the G7 nations—Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, and Japan—meet to discuss common objectives. The summit this year will concentrate on seven key agenda areas, including challenges with global geopolitics and security, economic toughness, and climate change and energy.
