He said the two will also discuss trade, and even the Rohingya crisis in Myanmar.
Mr Najib said the 9/11 terror attacks not only changed the U.S. but the world as the assault was inspired by the same "false and poisonous ideology" spread by the global terror network known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria ― or its various acronyms ISIS, IS and Daesh.
