Speaking on CCTV America, Carnegie’s Togzhan Kassenova commented on the successes and failures of the 2016 Nuclear Security Summit. While noting global successes, such as the fact that nuclear security has become a more mainstream issue understood by many more government officials, she also highlighted problems with the Summit, such as the fact that, unlike highly-enriched uranium, not enough progress has been made concerning plutonium, indicating that much work still needs to be done on this issue. She also acknowledged the risk of nuclear material being stolen by terrorist organizations, and touched on China’s nuclear energy ambitions.
