The Netherlands asked to host Nuclear Security Summit 2014

The US and South Korea have asked the Netherlands to host the Nuclear Security Summit in 2014. The summit, an initiative of President Obama, works at the highest political level to combat nuclear terrorism and the smuggling of nuclear material. It will be attended by government leaders from more than 45 countries.

The Dutch government regards the request as a sign of trust and has responded positively. The chairmanship will be officially transferred at the 2012 Summit in Seoul in March.

Nuclear terrorism is one of the greatest threats to world security. For the Netherlands, preventing nuclear and radiological terrorism is a top priority.
