US President Joe Biden said the G7 has agreed to work together to address corruption - such as "the abuse of shell companies, money laundering... and cyber threats, from state and non-state actors" - and to hold countries accountable that harboured those criminals.
"The only way we are going to meet global threats is by working together," said the US president, citing G7 commitments to deliver vaccines globally, driving economic recovery around the world, fuel infrastructure development where it is most needed - and fight climate change, reports the BBC.
"The US is going to do our part - America is back at the table," he said.
"The lack of participation in the past was noted significantly... not only by the leaders of those countries but by the people in those G7 countries."
"America is back in the business of leading the world, alongside nations who share our most deeply held values. The bottom line is, I was very pleased with the outcome of the entire conference," he remarked.
