There were 3 countries absent: Russia, China, India, and Pakistan

“The absence of Russia, China, Pakistan, and India – all nuclear weapons states with large amounts of nuclear material, as well as others, weakens the initiative’s impact,” said the Fissile Materials Working Group (FMWG), a coalition of anti-nuclear terrorism organizations.

Nuclear Security Summits are reaching tangible results notwithstanding major nuclear weapons states being absent from the initiative.

This is the third summit held since the 2010 summit, during which Ukraine decided to remove all of its Highly Enriched Uranium (HEM), a dangerous substance with a history of being used by terrorist forces to build nuclear weapons.

Ukraine crisis and evident tension between Russia and the West, the lack of HEM in Ukraine is a definite positive outcome of the nuclear summits.

This is a crucial summit that defines peace throughout the world.
