Radioactive Zuma in Seoul for nuclear summit

Pretoria - President Jacob Zuma is in Seoul, South Korea, for the Nuclear Security Summit that will see discussions around a guarantee on safety of nuclear materials and technology in efforts to prevent nuclear terrorism.

Zuma joins 53 other world leaders, including US President Barack Obama, who will convene the two day meeting under the theme "Beyond Security, Towards Peace".

This summit, according to the Department of International Relations and Cooperation (Dirco), is a follow up of the April 2010 Nuclear Security Summit in Washington.

At the 2010 Summit, Participating States made a political commitment to advance nuclear security through the adopted Communiqu, and Work Plan.

This summit will review the progress made since the 2010 summit and focus on facilitating national measures and international co-operation on nuclear security.

"The Summit takes place within the context of the commitment to achieve a world free from all weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear weapons. The Summit provides a forum to raise awareness and to support the work of existing bodies on nuclear security, especially the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)," Dirco's spokesperson Clayson Monyela explained.

Zuma is accompanied by Dirco Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane, and Energy Minister, Dipuo Peters. -BuaNews
