Nuclear Security Summit 2014

The Nuclear Security Summit was first held in 2010 with the goal of raising awareness about the need to tighten control of nuclear material. The agenda of the Nuclear Security Summit in 2014 is to work towards the establishment of tight controls over nuclear materials, seek greater transparency on national measures to enhance nuclear security, ask more countries to join international agreements on the physical protection of nuclear material, reduce the use of highly enriched uranium (HEU) and plutonium in national nuclear programmes and strengthen the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
