WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The United States will continue to press for more specific results in the quest to reduce nuclear material and improve nuclear and radiological security practices, the White House said in a statement ahead of the upcoming 2016 Nuclear Security Summit in Washington, DC.
"As much as we have accomplished through the Summit process, more work remains," the statement said. "We will continue to seek additional tangible results in nuclear material reductions and better overall nuclear and radiological security practices; we will look for ways to enhance the global nuclear security architecture."
The White House noted that the United States would continue to promote an nuclear security architecture, "comprehensive in its scope" and based on international standards.
Washington would also seek to promote "declining stocks of directly useable fissile material," the White House added.
From March 31 to April 1, the fourth Nuclear Security Summit will take place in Washington, DC and will be attended by leaders from over 50 countries, including France, Belgium, Turkey and the United Kingdom.
