|Global nuclear policy leadership networks' meeting in Singapore|
More than 30 high-profile global leaders from 20 countries across five continents came together in Singapore on November 19-20 to address nuclear threats ranging from proliferation and weapons build-up across Asia to the need for nuclear force postures that increase warning and decision time for leaders.
The meeting was the first-ever gathering of the four regional leadership networks that work with the Nuclear Security Project: the Asia Pacific Leadership Network, the European Leadership Network, the Latin American Leadership Network and the newly formed Nuclear Security Leadership Council, which is based in North America.
