Eradicating terrorism is the fundamental solution to ensure the nuclear security, said Li Hong, secretary-general of China Arms Control and Disarmament Association, an organization founded in Beijing in 2001 to promote arms control, disarmament, and nonproliferation, at the nuclear security summit in Seoul on March 26.

In today’s world the anti-terrorism situation is still grim and terrorist incidents occur occasionally, terrorists will resort to nuclear attack which could incur huge physical damage and causing social turmoil and dramatic fear, according to Li.

In order to resolve the nuclear security issues, Li put forward a four-point proposal, in addition to enhancing the safety of nuclear material.

First of all, addressing the root causes of terrorism and the elimination of terrorism is the most fundamental solution to eliminate nuclear terrorism.

Second, reducing the dependence on dangerous nuclear materials through technological innovation, such as transforming the high-enriched uranium reactors into the low-enriched uranium reactors with lower risks.

Third, enhancing the awareness and abilities for preventing terrorism.

Fourth, taking precautions to protect the safety of nuclear systems and facilities.

All of China’s newly-built research reactors use low-enriched uranium. China will be willing to provide technological assistance and support if the international community needs, Li added.
