Nuclear Security Summit Highly Relevant for The Netherlands
On 24 and 25 March 2014, 58 world leaders will assemble at the World Forum in The Hague to make specific agreements on preventing nuclear terrorism. The Nuclear Security Summit will also be attended by thousands of delegates and journalists. The third NSS will centre on the results achieved and the future.
The Netherlands has a global reputation as a country of peace, justice and security. Both the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court are headquartered in The Hague. The NSS is especially important for us because the Netherlands is home to two major transshipment hubs – Schiphol airport and the port of Rotterdam – which heightens the risk of nuclear material being smuggled across our borders. This country also has companies in the nuclear sector that require tight security. By hosting the NSS we are doing our part to make the world and the Netherlands a safer place.
