In recognition of contributions to the largest summit ever held in the nuclear security field. Participants included more than 53 heads of state and international organizations, including the President of the United States. The Seoul Nuclear Security Summit brought these parties together to discuss international cooperative measures to protect nuclear materials and facilities from terrorist groups. The National Nuclear Security Administration completed numerous high priority projects that were among the most important activities highlighted at the Summit. These activities were the culmination of over two years of intensive efforts which included the completion of several Presidential commitments made at the 2010 Nuclear Security Summit in Washington, D.C. These actions directly support President Obama's international effort to secure all vulnerable nuclear material around the world within four years and have made the United States and the entire international community safer from the threat of terrorism.
