Rising food costs, an uncertain global economy, climate change and Zimbabwe's political crisis face the G8 leaders. What would you like to see them discuss?

A White House spokesman said they were likely to "strongly condemn" Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe over a disputed presidential election run-off poll.

Last year, Japanese officials said this summit would be about climate. But rising food and oil prices and their effect on the global economy have moved up the agenda.

Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun reported that the G8 countries wanted to create a system of food reserves that would act to stabilise prices.

Is the G8 focusing on the right issues? What is more important - climate change or rising oil and food prices? Would condemnation of Robert Mugabe make a difference?
