Global Nuclear Security Summit 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — Keynes @ 8:40 am

Last Tuesday and Wednesday, 47 world leaders gathered and agreed on comprehensive nuclear disbarment at Global Nuclear Security Summit in Washington D.C. Also, they have made a concrete action plan to reduce the nuclear weapon by unanimous vote. Leaders of 47 countries have signed President Barack Obama’s request for securing all nuclear materials in the world to keep them out of terrorists within four years.

The summit was the biggest and the most meaningful attempt to check and reduce deadly armaments, especially the atomic bombs and missiles. As a matter of fact, the nuclear weapon has been the most serious threat to all over the world. Therefore, although this is just a start with discussion between nations, many people say that it is very welcome worldwide meeting.

In addition, the second Global Summit will be hosted at Seoul at South Korea in 2012. The decision of the location on next meeting was also unanimously approved by the participants. Because of the nation’s geostrategic location, it could be more pressure on North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons program. For example, the Washington summit has urged North Korea to comply with the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

  1. This is a really good thing to see and I remember hearing about this. I’m glad that world leaders are realizing there is no need for these types of weapons of mass destruction.
