BRUSSELS - Leaders of the G-7 group of major economies are turning their attention during the concluding day of their summit to spurring growth and jobs in an attempt to reinforce a rebound from the global financial crisis.

And after President Barack Obama's new effort to curb greenhouse gas pollution, the seven leaders are set to show their determination to find a global deal on climate change in Paris next year. They will also seek ways to increase energy security, which has become especially touchy for the European Union because of its dependence on Russian gas.

The seven have kept the threat of further sanctions against Russia over its involvement in the Ukraine crisis on the table but also sought renewed co-operation to end the standoff.
