US Defence Secretary Ash Carter is meeting counterparts from 10 countries that are key contributors to the fight against Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.
Carter is expected to push the defence ministers to increase their military commitment to the US-led anti-Islamic State coalition, which comprises 60 countries and has conducted some 12,000 airstrikes in Syria and Iraq since September 2014.
US President Barack Obama announced last month that he has approved the deployment of an additional 250 troops to Syria to support local forces in the fight against Islamic State.
The ministers will also discuss Islamic State's growing presence in Libya.
