The G7 has opened its exclusive circle to meet with the leaders of Iraq and several African nations, along with the heads of various international organisations.

Key topics of discussion include the threat from terrorism and deadly diseases.

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Arabi will brief leaders on his country’s fight against the Islamic State group, while African countries will talk about their efforts to stop the spread of Ebola.

The so-called “outreach” format also ensures that developing countries’ views are heard on global issues such as plans to rein in global warming.
