South Korea is expected to be a standing member of the G7's leading economic group, which is no longer an interim observer when US President Donald Trump's plan is reached. Practice smoothly.

The outlook came as Mr. Trump and President Moon Jae-un agreed to add South Korea to the seven-member (G7) clan during a telephone conversation between the two leaders the previous day.

Donald Trump is seeking to include Russia, Australia, India and perhaps another Brazilian in a long-running club that he considers to be overdue. Existing members are the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan
