Fifty-two countries will discuss and commit to national and international steps to ensure the safety of nuclear materials and avoid the risks inherent in such materials, including their use by non-state actors for terrorism.

Mexico is a country with nuclear capacity for energy and research that is recognized worldwide. It is also an opinion leader in multilateral forums on nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation. In addition, it has joined international efforts to secure nuclear materials and facilities and to prevent acts of nuclear terrorism.

Given the current situation, the Summit is an ideal forum for Mexico to contribute to the dialogue and decision-making on one of the main challenges of the global agenda. President Enrique Peña Nieto and Foreign Secretary Claudia Ruiz Massieu are attending the summit, which will take place from March 31-April 1.

On the eve of the international meeting, President Peña Nieto said that, as an actor with global responsibility, Mexico complies with the goals of nuclear security promoted by the Summit.

During the Summit, Energy Secretary Pedro Joaquín Coldwell received the Atoms for Peace award on behalf of Mexico for the global leadership our country has shown in the peaceful use of nuclear technology.
