NNSA, Rosatom, UK Ministry of Defence Hold Trilateral Nuclear Security Best Practices Workshop
Representatives from the U.S. National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), U.K.'s Ministry of Defence (MoD), and Russia's State Atomic Energy Corporation "Rosatom" met Nov. 5-6 in Lisbon, Portugal, for the Eighth Nuclear Security Best Practices Exchange. The workshop focused on overcoming mutual challenges related to securing nuclear material. The annual workshops were initiated in 2005 as a result of commitments made by President Bush and President Putin in their Joint Statement on Nuclear Security Cooperation, and which were reaffirmed by President Obama and President Medvedev at a presidential summit in 2009. The U.K. joined as a party to the workshops in 2008 and has since made important contributions.
