Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe speaks at a news conference during the G7 Ise-Shima Summit in ShimaBy Tetsushi Kajimoto ISE-SHIMA, Japan (Reuters) - The Group of Seven industrial powers pledged on Friday to seek strong global growth, while papering over differences on currencies and stimulus policies and expressing concern over North Korea, Russia and maritime disputes involving China. G7 leaders wrapped up a summit in central Japan vowing to use "all policy tools" to boost demand and ease supply constraints. "Global growth remains moderate and below potential, while risks of weak growth persist," they said in a declaration.

In Japan, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been dubbed "ikemen shusho", Japanese for "hunky PM"Ise-Shima (Japan) (AFP) - From the country that gave the world "Bieber Fever," Canada's "other Justin" -- heartthrob Prime Minister Justin Trudeau -- has made quite a splash on his visit to Japan for the G7 summit. Japanese media and his growing legions of female fans have been swooning over the 44-year-old PM, who celebrated his 11th wedding anniversary earlier this week by taking the day off to go on a romantic date with wife Sophie at Tokyo's Meiji Shrine. Social media lit up, many users reposting photos of Canada's first couple strolling hand in hand through the shrine's pristine gardens, proving that even politicians have a soft side.
