    The leaders of the Group of Seven advanced economies have pledged to "collectively tackle" major risks to global growth, including direct political threats to the international order from terrorist attacks, violent extremism and refugee flows. 

    G-7 leaders wrapped up their annual summit Friday with a declaration that claimed a "special responsibility" for leading international efforts to cope with those challenges. 

    They committed to a cooperative approach in beefing up policies to stimulate and sustain growth of their sluggish economies with use of flexible spending strategies to create jobs and shore up confidence in uncertain times.
