World leaders to discuss threat of ISIS next week

isisIn the aftermath of the horrific terror attacks in Brussels, world leaders at a special session during the Nuclear Security Summit in Washington next week will discuss threats posed by groups like ISIS to urban areas across the globe and seek solutions to counter such assaults.

” We’ll use that opportunity to also review our joint efforts against ISIL and to make sure the world remains united in this effort to protect our people,” US President Barack Obama said in his weekly radio and web address to the nation today.

Top world leaders, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif and Chinese President Xi Jinping are scheduled to attend the fourth such summit meeting — an initiative of Obama, according to a report by PTI.

The two-day summit on March 31 and April 1 will convene delegations from more than 50 nations that will continue discussion on the evolving threat and highlight steps that can be taken together to minimise the use of highly-enriched uranium, secure vulnerable materials, counter nuclear smuggling and deter, detect, and disrupt attempts at nuclear terrorism, the White House said
