Developing countries join G8 at Huntsville summit
In a barrage of camera flashes, the leaders of seven African countries,
Haiti, Jamaica and Colombia arrived at a resort in Huntsville, Ont., joining the meeting of G8 nations that opened Friday.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper welcomed the select group of developing-country leaders after handpicking them to attend side meetings at the G8 summit.
"I'd like to offer a special welcome to our new attendees," Harper told reporters. "I'm glad that once again we're able to build on the G8's strong tradition of outreach to African partners."
Discussions with the leaders of South Africa, Egypt, Algeria, Malawi, Ethiopia, Nigeria and Senegal will focus on development issues.
