At the closing news conference, US President Barack Obama made a push for increased intelligence-sharing to prevent terror strikes. He said a lot of nuclear material needs to be secured.

"Nevertheless, as I said earlier, our work is by no means finished. There's still a great deal of nuclear and radioactive material around the world that needs to be secured. Global stocks of plutonium are growing, nuclear arsenals are expanding in some countries, with more small tactical nuclear weapons which could be at greater risk of theft," Obama said.
