Interview with Brian Kolenda

Brian Kolenda from the G8 Research Group commented to Russia Today on the compliancy report on the G8 that was compiled by the group.

Russia Today: Some protesters and some analysts say that the G8 has failed to fulfil its commitments made. How many of those promises have actually been implemented?

Brian Kolenda: According to our research, we tracked about 20 commitments made at St. Petersburg last year. We found that 47% of the time the G8 complied with these commitments and about half of the time they did not. This is about the average result for the G8 over the past 10 years that we have been studying the Group.

RT: The climate change, Africa, the global economy are on the agenda of this year
