Leaders from Australia, Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Mexico, South Africa and South Korea and the Group of Eight (G8) nations held a major economies leaders meeting on Wednesday to discuss climate change and energy.

The meeting came on the third and final day of the annual summit of the G8, which groups Britain, Canada, Italy, Japan, France, Germany, Russia and the United States.

Earlier in the day, the G8 leaders met with their counterparts from Brazil, China, India, Mexico and South Africa for an outreach working session to discuss a range of global issues.

That was the fourth annual meeting since 2005 between leaders of the G8 and the five developing countries.

Climate change, world economy and African development have been chosen as the main topics of the G8 summit, which started Monday at Toyako, a resort town on the northern island of Hokkaido.

The leaders from the G8 -- Britain, Canada, Italy, Japan, France, Germany, Russia and the United States -- also talked with the presidents of seven African nations on the first day of the gathering.
