Obama To Hold Muslim Summit if Elected


US presidential candidate Barack Obama said Thursday that he would hold a summit with Muslim countries if he is elected president, in order to repair the United States' image in the world.

"Once I'm elected, I want to organize a summit in the Muslim world," he told the French magazine Paris Match, "with all the heads of state, to have an honest discussion about ways to bridge the gap that grows every day between Muslims and the West."

Obama said he would ask Muslim leaders to join the international fight against terrorism, and said his administration would "listen to their concerns."
