THE HAGUE, November 25, 19:35 /ITAR-TASS/. The Nuclear Security Summit 2014 will take place in the Netherlands on March 24-25, 2014, Prime Minister Mark Rutte said.
“There are many nuclear materials. If they fall into the hands of terrorists, the consequences may be unpredictable. The world community should exert maximum effort to prevent this,” Rutte said.
The fact that the Netherlands hosts the summit is a big honor. The summit will facilitate the strengthening of international security, the premier said, adding that the conference would be organised at the highest level.
The Nuclear Security Summit is expected to involve leaders from over 50 states and leaders of four major international organizations.
The Nuclear Security Summit was initiated by U.S. President Barack Obama. The first summit took place in Washington in 2010 and the second one was held in Seoul in 2012. Traditionally, the summits focus on the non-proliferation, international security and the reduction of nuclear materials in the world.
