One week ahead of the G8 summit in Northern Ireland, European Commission President José Manuel Barroso has set out the EU's views on the main topics identified for this year's G8 summit.

Referring to the summit being held in Northern Ireland, President Barroso writes: "The G8 summit in Northern Ireland is particularly emotional.  The summit places on the global stage the local and national efforts, supported not least by the European Union, that over two decades have returned peace and reconciliation to this most beautiful and hospitable part of Europe."
