New Zealand Committed To Securing Nuclear Materials – PM

Prime Minister John Key, said on Monday, in Wellington that New Zealand is committed to helping prevent nuclear terrorism.

He said this was coming ahead of his attendance at the fourth and final Nuclear Security Summit in Washington from March 29 to April 1.

Key said the Nuclear Security Summit is an opportunity for him and those in attendance to address nuclear terrorism threats at the global level.
“New Zealand is committed to the goal of securing vulnerable nuclear materials worldwide.
“This meeting will be a chance to press for greater international cooperation in this area,’’ he said.

The prime minister said his country had been represented at the previous three Nuclear Security Summits, which were held in Washington in 2010, in Seoul in 2012 and The Hague in 2014.

“Since the first Nuclear Security Summit in 2010, New Zealand has contributed more than 2.7 million dollars to international projects to strengthen nuclear security.
“We have also taken action to secure material in New Zealand through the Radiation Safety Act 2016, which was passed earlier this month, and provides new regulations for people who use or manage radioactive or nuclear material,”he said.

Kay stressed that as small as New Zealand is, it is not immune to the risks posed by nuclear terrorism.

He disclosed that ahead of the summit, He would meet with senior members of President Barack Obama’s Cabinet on trade and economic issues and give a speech to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

“The U.S. is a key economic partner for New Zealand and I look forward to discussing ways of increasing trade between our two countries, including under the Trans-Pacific Partnership. (Xinhua/NAN)
