The NSS will take place on 24 and 25 March 2014 at the World Forum in The Hague. The goal of the Summit is to prevent nuclear terrorism around the world. Four international organisations and 53 countries will participate, represented at the highest political level. The first NSS was held in Washington, in 2010. In 2012 the second NSS took place in Seoul. President Obama asked the Netherlands to organise the third summit.
