During the summit Sheikh Mohamed also spoke about the importance of international efforts on stopping nuclear terrorism.

Referencing the success of several nuclear security summits, the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi revealed: "The UAE has taken an active part in the security summits since 2010. These international meetings have made a number of achievements including the highlighting of challenges posed by nuclear terrorism which have forced many states to take measures to secure nuclear and radioactive material against the danger of terrorism."
