Full coverage: Xi Visits Czech Republic, Attends Nuclear Security Summit

With the backdrop of a growing global terrorist threat and simmering tensions in various regions, there was certainly no lack of coverage by the international media on this year's nuclear security summit.

A Time article actually reported how discussions had a brand new element to them. It says that "with the threat of terror groups like ISIS getting their hands on nuclear weapons looming large, this year's event has taken a new focus". In the wake of the attack in Brussels, efforts to prevent Islamic militants gaining more power have only grown.

The Foreign Policy magazine took a bleaker outlook on nuclear security. A commentary in that says that despite some progress, the sweeping goals -- referring here to President Obama's plan to lock down all vulnerable nuclear materials worldwide -- not only remained unfulfilled, but out of reach for the foreseeable future.

Meanwhile, the Australian highlighted the importance of China and the US working together on key global affairs. A commentary in the newspaper says that even modest success at the summit will be seized on by China and the US as a sign that, despite tensions in some areas, they remain capable of managing their relationship towards positive outcomes in other international arenas.
