Obama to host UN Security Council summit next month on threat from foreign terrorist fighters

The U.S. administration says that President Barack Obama will host a summit meeting of the U.N. Security Council next month to focus on the threat posed by foreign terrorist fighters.

The United States holds the Security Council presidency in September and the Obama administration said Monday that the president is inviting leaders of the 14 other council nations to attend the summit during the week of Sept. 22, when they gather for the annual ministerial meeting of the General Assembly.

The United States is hoping the Security Council will adopt a resolution addressing the phenomenon of foreign fighters.

An estimated 12,000 foreign terrorist fighters have joined the conflicts in Iraq and Syria, a U.S. U.N. Mission official said.
