    Some countries are snubbing a US-sponsored meeting about Iran's role in the Middle East.

    But Poland, the host country, says Iran will not be the only item on the agenda.

    They say delegates will also discuss the presence of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS), and the war in Syria.
