The United Nations' Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, has issued a warning about nuclear terrorism and is calling on participants at the Washington summit to begin negotiations for a treaty.

Ban Ki-moon, United Nations' Secretary-General, said, "Nuclear terrorism is one of the greatest threats we face today. That is why I repeatedly urge the conference on disarmament to immediately start negotiations on a treaty banning the production of fissile materials for nuclear weapons and other explosive devices. And that is why in Washington I will call on all world leaders to come together, perhaps at the United Nations in September, to further advance these essential calls for humankind."
