The world is becoming a safer place. During the Nuclear Security Summit (NSS 2014) in The Hague, 58 world leaders made concrete agreements to prevent terrorists getting their hands on nuclear material that could be used to make a nuclear weapon. This will further reduce the threat of a nuclear attack.
Teams of international experts will evaluate the effectiveness of individual countries’ nuclear security measures, and international guidelines on the protection of nuclear materials will be translated into national legislation. Thirty-five countries pledged at the Nuclear Security Summit (NSS2014) in The Hague to participate in this initiative.
Speaking after the first day of the Nuclear Security Summit, Prime Minister Mark Rutte said: "It was a good first day. As chairman of this NSS I’m very satisfied. This is only the halfway point, but I’m convinced we’ll be able to continue in the same excellent atmosphere tomorrow."
