ROUGH CUT - NATURAL (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. President Barack Obama arrived in Japan on Wednesday (May 25) for this week's Group of Seven summit. He was greeted at Chubu Centrair International Airport in Tokoname by a Japanese delegation and the U.S. Ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy and her husband Edwin Schlossburg. Concerns about the health of the global economy will top the agenda at the G7 summit, although a full agreement on macro-economic policy looks hard to come by. Summit topics are expected to also include terrorism, refugees, trade, cyber security and maritime security, including China's assertiveness in the East and South China Seas, where Beijing has territorial disputes with Japan and several Southeast Asian nations. The G7 group includes Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United States.
