The United States will host this year's summit with the European Union on November 28.

A White House statement says President Barack Obama looks forward to meeting with EU leaders in Washington.

They are to discuss a wide range of issues, including the global economy and their joint work to support democracy and prosperity in Europe and across the Middle East and North Africa.

The White House statement says the leaders also will discuss their continuing coordination on Iran and their commitment to improve transatlantic law enforcement and counterterrorism cooperation.

Those attending the White House summit will include European Council President Herman Van Rompuy, European Commission President José Manuel Barroso and High Representative Catherine Ashton.

The last U.S.-EU summit was held a year ago in Lisbon.
