CAIRO - Arab foreign ministers meeting in Cairo on Sunday are expected to issue a resolution backing Iraqi efforts to confront militants who have overrun large areas of Iraq and Syria and declared a cross-border Islamic caliphate, diplomats said.

An Iraqi diplomatic source said Baghdad had proposed a draft resolution that would endorse its efforts to confront Islamic State militants and condemn the group's actions as war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Other diplomatic sources said the Arab League would agree a resolution endorsing the US military campaign against the group.

Egypt's official Mena news agency quoted a source saying the foreign ministers would agree to coordinate with the United States.

It was not immediately clear if this would be part of the same resolution.
