Canada is set to host the first meeting of women foreign ministers in September, officials said Wednesday.

The meeting will take place in Montreal on September 21 and 22 while the UN General Assembly is underway in New York, Canada's foreign ministry spokesman Adam Austen said.

The event will be hosted by Canada's Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland, along with the European Union's foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, according to a statement by the EU.

There are currently about 30 women in the world leading their countries' diplomacy: eight in Europe (including Mogherini), ten in Latin America and the Caribbean; five in Africa (including South Africa); ten in Latin America and the Caribbean, and others in Asia, including India, Indonesia and Australia.
