Washington (CNN) - President Obama said Tuesday that the 47-nation nuclear security summit he convened raised global awareness of the threat of nuclear terrorism and yielded commitments to better secure nuclear arsenals and materials.
At a news conference wrapping up the two-day summit, Obama cited steps taken by countries including Russia and other former Soviet states to eliminate some of the vulnerable vestiges of nuclear stockpiles from the Cold War era.
However, Obama was unable to declare a breakthrough with China and Russia on imposing tougher sanctions against Iran over its nuclear ambitions.
Were there any security breeches? After the embarrassment of hosting the King of India I hope not.
Whatever oh clueless one.
Real progress = lots more people to bow to in a show of submission!
This is a great start. Much more to do but Obama has accomplished more in this one year on nuclear arms negotiations than we have in the previous 8. There is much more to be done but Obama has begun the dialogue. This is putting leaders on notice that, if they don't participate, they put their nations in danger.
Iran and N. Korea continue unabated in the development of their nuclear programs.......am I to get excited because the Ukraine supposedly is dumping their nukes.....they couldn't afford it anyway.....
Here we have nothing less than a real class act- President Obama- finally some one with common sense and yet a lack of naivity. Here's a guy that's no one's fool(don't say that to the opposition!) but its true. Anyone having a bit of gray matter could see this. I have never witnessed in my 61 years a president who had it all-This gentleman has it all!
Thank you for signing that agreement secretary clinton and russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov
This clown just keeps bringing America to Her knees.
How much weaker can you make us with the rest of the world.
We will all be speaking Spainish or something else before it's all over.
You are a weak President worse than Carter and that's pretty bad.
No breakthrough on tougher with Russia and China on santions against Iran. That's OK. Atleast they are working on it and not at the point of keeping our three nations preped for war. At least there is talk of peace and not of war.
"raised global awareness of the threat of nuclear terrorism and yielded commitments to better secure nuclear arsenals and materials."
Duh, you think? Obama's just now getting this.
In real estate terms we call the Russian "opt out" option as a promise in the wind.
We should agree with Russia to destroy the thousands of bomb components that are stored and not part of the active inventory. That would make the world a lot safer.
China and Russia will protect Iran and their interests in the Middle East.
Sure Obama keep drinking your Kool Aid. Everyone is laughing at how weak this country has become since you have been president.
