The joint declaration against terrorism says the signatories, leaders of the US, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Canada and Japan, condemn all forms of terrorism.
The 15-point document also said that fighting “violent extremism” is a priority for the G7, who "will bring the fight ... to a higher level by relentlessly preventing, investigating and prosecuting terrorist acts, their perpetrators and supporters".
The G7 agreed to work with the private sector and civil society to tackle terrorism.
The declaration was the first agreement of a two-day G7 summit, which also includes European Council President Donald Tusk and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker. (vb/pk)
