L'Aquila (Italy), July 9 (ANI): Addressing the media following the G-5 outreach summit here, the Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh, once again took on the West and blamed it for the current economic meltdown.

"The developing countries have been the worst affected by the weakened global economy," Dr. Singh said.

He further said that outreach countries had discussed how they could contribute to strengthening the green shoots of recovery.

Dr. Singh also attacked the West for putting pressure on developing countries for emission cuts.

"Climate change cannot be addressed by perpetuating the poverty of the developing countries," he said.

The G-5 countries had also agreed that agriculture and food security should be placed at the core of the international agenda, he added.

"The G- 5 will be beginning its dialogue with the G-8 countries tomorrow and the developing economies have decided to drive home the point and stress on the importance of maintaining adequate flow of finance to the developing countries and also of keeping markets open by resisting protectionist pressures," Dr. Singh said.
