The external affairs ministry’s spokesperson Vikas Swaroop said the prime minister will highlight India’s safety and non-proliferation records at the summit, as also make some specific announcements and proposals with regard to nuclear security. The 2016 Summit will take stock of the progress of implementation of the previous communiqué’s work plan as also outline an agenda for the future, Swaroop added.

Of the 24 states with weapons-usable nuclear materials and the 23 states that have nuclear facilities but no weapons-usable nuclear materials, 13 received a maximum score for cyber security under the nuclear security index, but 20 states score zero since they do not have basic requirements to protect their nuclear facilities from cyber attacks, reports dna.
