Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that nuclear security must remain an abiding national priority. Speaking at the banquet hosted by US President Barack Obama in Washington, PM calls upon all nations to completely abide by their international obligations.

Prime Minister said that without prevention and prosecution of acts of terrorism, there is no deterrence against nuclear terrorism.

He also added that terrorism is globally networked. But, we still act only nationally to counter this threat.

On the first day of Nuclear Security Summit in Washington DC, the Prime Minister, along with heads of several countries, attended the working dinner hosted by the US President Barak Obama at White House last night. Mr Modi emphasized that all states must completely abide by their international obligations in the realm of nuclear security.

In a series of tweets, MEA Spokesperson Vikas Swarup informed that the Prime Minister made it clear that without prevention and prosecution of acts of terrorism there is no deterrence against nuclear terrorism. The Prime Minister said that State actors working with nuclear traffickers and terrorists present the greatest risk. The Prime Minister said that the countries are no longer looking for a man in a cave, but they are hunting for a terrorist in a city with a computer or a smart phone.

Meanwhile, United States all set to host the 4th Nuclear Security Summit in Washington DC today; PM Modi to make a strong pitch for strengthening international cooperation against terrorism and nuclear trafficking in the 2-day summit; more than 50 nations participating.

When over 50 leaders meet for the 4th Nuclear Security Summit in Washington, their prime concern would be to ensure the safety of nuclear material and facilities from falling in the hands of terror organisations like the Islamic State.

The agenda of the summit is to prepare action plans for safeguarding nuclear material and facilities and preventing nuclear terrorism.

According to an estimate, the world has about 800 metric tonnes of radioactive uranium and plutonium, that lie in hundreds of civilian nuclear reactors and military stations spread over 50 countries.
