_74544031_74544030President Francois Hollande is set to host security summit in Paris on Saturday, a month after over 200 Nigerian schoolgirls from Chibok were abducted by Islamist militants Boko Haram.

Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan will also attend the talks and address security threats the country face from militant groups including Boko Haram and strategies to tackle with them.

Jonathan had on Friday cancelled his trip to the Chibok town due to security concerns.

He had also refused the offer of exchange of prisoners for freedom of abducted girls.

Apart from Nigeria, leaders from neighbouring areas like Chad, Niger, Cameroon and Benin are also expected to attend the talks.

Experts from US and France are also assisting Nigeria to help trace the missing schoolgirls.

A recent video of the girls showed the video of the schoolgirls in which they were seen wearing hijabs and reciting Koranic verses.

The Boko Haram leader had claimed that the kidnapped schoolgirls have been converted to Islam.
