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. "Global growth remains moderate and below potential, while risks of weak growth persist," the G7 leaders said after a summit in central Japan, vowing to use "all policy tools" to boost demand and ease supply constraints. "Global growth is our urgent priority." Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, talking up what he calls parallels to the global financial crisis that followed the 2008 Lehman Brothers bankruptcy, said the G7 "shares a strong sense of crisis" about the outlook for the global economy and is committed to concerted action to lift demand.

A second nuclear bomb was dropped on Nagasaki three days later. Coming in Obama's final year in office, the visit also marks seven years since he used his trademark soaring rhetoric to call for the elimination of atomic arms in a landmark speech in Prague that helped him win the Nobel Peace Prize.
