The Nuclear Security Summit (NSS) process began with U.S. President Barack Obama’s call for improved international collaboration on nuclear security in Prague in 2009. Since then, high-level summits have been held in Washington in 2010, and Seoul, Republic of Korea in 2012. Leaders from the 53 participant countries and four international organizations are meeting a third time in The Hague in March 2014.
