L’AQUILA, Italy (CNN) — President Barack Obama revealed to G-8 colleagues at a dinner Wednesday that he’s planning a nuclear security summit in Washington for next March, according to senior administration officials.
Obama first raised the idea of bringing major nations together for such a summit earlier in the week at a news conference with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev. Obama said then he would like a follow-up summit held in Moscow to deal with the thorny issue of preventing nations like Iran and North Korea from getting nuclear weapons.
But getting G-8 members like Russia to sign on to new sanctions against Iran is proving difficult for Obama.
