World leaders urge action against nuke terrorism
[Dawn] World leaders called on Tuesday for strong action to combat the threat of nuclear terrorism, including minimising civilian use of highly enriched uranium (HEU), which can be turned into bombs.
"Nuclear terrorism continues to be one of the most challenging threats to international security," said a joint communique at the end of a two-day summit in South Korea bringing together leaders or brass hats from 53 nations.
"Defeating this threat requires strong national measures and international cooperation."
The leaders, including US President Barack Obama

and Chinese President Hu Jintao
...Hu has been involved in the Communist party bureaucracy for most of his adult life, meaning his viewpoint has a lot more theory than it does practice. He espouses a

, stressed the "fundamental responsibility" of all nations to safeguard nuclear material and keep it out of the hands of terrorists.
