The Nuclear Security Summit 2014, set for March 24-25 in The Netherlands, is a world summit aimed at preventing nuclear terrorism around the globe.  The goal of the summit is to compose a joint communique that contains clear agreements to prevent nuclear terrorism by reducing stockpiles of hazardous nuclear material around the world, better securing nuclear material, and intensifying international cooperation.

The Nuclear Security Summits were initiated by President Obama, who pointed out the dangers of nuclear terrorism in a speech in Prague in 2009. The first NSS was held in Washington D.C. in 2010, followed by a second summit in Seoul in March 2012.
