In the NATO summit which will begin today in Brssels, NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) chief Jens Stoltenberg said that terrorism will top the agenda of the meeting.

Diplomatic sources said, NATO is to join the US-led anti-Islamic State coalition(IS), meeting a key demand of US President Donald Trump that the alliance do more to fight Islamist terrorism. Sources said the NATO ambassadors have decided an action plan on terrorism for the summit, which includes the accession of NATO to the global coalition against IS.

NATO leaders will formally endorse the decision at the summit, the sources said. President Donald Trump has arrived in Brussels to take part in the summit. He held talks with Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel and said NATO members will work together on various problems and the top priority is terrorism.

Trump is expected to ask other NATO member nations to contribute further to the military campaign against the Islamic State terror group. Earlier, NATO chief, Jens Stoltenberg said that many allies would like to see NATO as a full member of the coalition because it sends a strong message of unity.
