Washington DC: During the two-day Nuclear Summit which begins from tomorrow, President Barack Obama will huddle with dozens of world leaders over the battle with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS).

According to CNN, the summit which is meant to strengthen security measures around nuclear weapons is set to bring together more than 50 delegations to the U.S. capital, many of which play a role in the anti-ISIS coalition.

India, Pakistan, France, Belgium, the United Kingdom and Turkey are all expected to be represented.

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who is under scrutiny for his efforts in stemming the flow of foreign fighters to Europe, is also expected to attend.

The discussion is likely to focus on the issue of foreign fighters, as well as preventing ISIS from obtaining chemical or radiological weapons.
