ABC News' Sunlen Miller reports: President Obama today will host a two-day nuclear security summit in Washington, DC bringing together leaders of 46 countries to “discuss ways to secure vulnerable nuclear material around the world.” The White House expects to generate a communiqué out of this summit that will address the pursuit of securing vulnerable nuclear material from around the world  in the next four years.
On the eve of the summit yesterday, President Obama warned that terrorist groups are trying to obtain nuclear weapons — and they will use it. “We know that organizations like al Qaeda are in the process of trying to secure a nuclear weapon — a weapon of mass destruction that they have no compunction at using," the president said yesterday. On day one of the summit the president will also hold separate bilateral meetings during the day with King Abdullah II of Jordan, Prime Minister Mohammed Najib Abdul Razak of Malaysia, President Viktor Yanukovich of Ukraine, President Serzh Sargsian of Armenia, and President Hu Jintao of China at the Washington Convention Center in downtown Washington, D.C. In the evening, the President will host a working dinner for Heads of Delegation in the Washington Convention Center Dining Room. -Sunlen Miller
