Leaders: US, UK will 'not be cowed' by militants

NEWPORT - Faced with a mounting militant threat in the Middle East, President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron declared Thursday that their nations will "not be cowed" by extremists who have killed two American journalists.

 

"We will be more forthright in the defense of our values, not least because a world of greater freedom is a fundamental part of how we
keep our people safe," the leaders wrote in a joint editorial in the Times of London.

 

Their comments come as world leaders gather at a golf resort in Wales for a high-stakes NATO summit. While the official agenda will focus on the crisis in Ukraine and the drawdown of the NATO combat mission in Afghanistan, the rise of the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria will dominate discussions on the sidelines of the summit.
