STRELNA, July 16 (RIA Novosti) - G8 leaders supported Sunday Russia's proposal to create a regional coordinating body in eastern Europe and Central Asia to develop an HIV vaccine.

"We remain committed to our Sea Island Summit initiative on creation of a Global HIV Vaccine Enterprise, and reaffirm our determination to bring it to fruition," a statement on the fight against infectious diseases adopted at the St. Petersburg summit of the Group of Eight industrialized nations said.

"In this regard, we welcome the Russian proposal to establish a regional coordination mechanism to promote HIV vaccine development in the countries of Eastern Europe and Central Asia, and call for this initiative to be carefully coordinated with the Global HIV Vaccine Enterprise," the document said.

Global HIV Vaccine Enterprise is a virtual consortium to accelerate HIV vaccine development by enhancing coordination, information sharing, and collaboration globally.
