The United States on 11 January 2015 announced that it will host an international Anti-terror Summit in Washington. The summit will be held on 18 February 2015 and will aim on preventing violent extremism that was seen in attack on Charlie Hebdo’s Paris office.

The meeting will highlight best practices (domestic and international) and emerging efforts from several US communities carrying out pilot programs to address extremism.

The US Attorney General Eric Holder announced about the summit from Paris where he had joined an emergency conference on terrorism. The conference was held in the wake of a terror spree in France in first week of January 2014 in which 17 people (in attack and manhunt) were killed.

The conference was attended by Interior and Justice Ministers from Europe and the US, where they called for increased Internet surveillance and stricter border security to counter attacks like the massacre at the Charlie Hebdo weekly newspaper.
