Abstract

Distributed among some 40 countries around the world, there is enough plutonium and highly enriched uranium to produce some 120,000 nuclear bombs, and a considerable portion of this material is not held under sufficient control and supervision. Terrorist organizations and other non-state actors have been actively seeking to obtain some of these nuclear materials in order to manufacture nuclear weapons. Furthermore, North Korea, Iran and Syria have been directly operating nuclear weapons programs, posing a threat to the nuclear non-proliferation regime. Considering these developments, we cannot deny that the global nuclear security situation has become increasingly vulnerable. President Obama has felt these concerns and drawn attention to the importance of nuclear security, and in April 2010 he hosted the 1st Nuclear Security Summit in order to seek common ground and cooperation among world leaders.
