Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is hosting the first full meeting since 2014 of foreign ministers and senior officials from the 68 countries and international organizations that are part of the U.S.-led coalition to fight Islamic State. The State Department says the goal of the conference is to accelerate international efforts to defeat ISIS in the remaining areas it holds in Iraq and Syria, and maximize pressure on its branches, affiliates and networks.
