President Barack Obama will convene a meeting of European allies to discuss the West's response to Russia's provocations in Ukraine and Islamic militants in Syria and Iraq.
 
The meeting will occur Thursday morning on the sidelines of the NATO summit in Wales. Obama arrived here Wednesday night after a whirlwind visit to Estonia, where he pledged NATO support to Baltic nations who fear Russia could threaten their sovereignty.
 
The leaders of Britain, France, Germany and Italy will join Obama for Thursday's meeting. The leaders are expected to discuss the potential for deeper economic sanctions on Russia and European contributions to efforts to stamp out Islamic State militants.
 
Obama will also meet Thursday afternoon with Jordan's King Abdullah, whose country is caught in the crossfire Middle East tumult.
