The three-day summit of the Group of Eight (G8) kicks off on Monday with the first session between leaders of the industrialized nations with their counterparts from seven African countries.

The summit in a lakeside resort of Toyako on the northern island of Hokkaido would focus on among other issues, climate change, the world economy and African development.

The presidents of Algeria, South Africa, Nigeria, Senegal, Ghana, Tanzania and Ethiopia will join leaders from Britain, Canada, Italy, Japan, France, Germany, Russia and the United States for a working lunch which starts at 12:30 local time and a following outreach session.

Many African countries have urged developed countries, the G8 nations in particular, to fulfill their promises and become more committed to helping the continent fight poverty and develop the economy.
