The Increased Threat of Nuclear Misuse

(Source:VOAIndonesia.com) The leaders coming from more than 50 countries, including Indonesia met in the Nuclear Security Summit, that started on Thursday. The summit was held in the middle of increased concerns on nuclear material misuse.

Early March, Iraq authorities accused ISIS of firing a rocket that covered with chemical substances to an area close to Kirkuk city, injured almost 600 people. The consequences would be more severe if these terrorist own nuclear materials.

Michaele Dodge from Heritage Foundation said, “Fragile nuclear material can be used to develop an illegal nuclear weapon, can also be used to develop IED and may create series of issues when it falls in the hand of non-state actors. If that happens, it may impose a serious threat.”

Another serious threat is the possibility nuclear misuse by an insider. As mentioned by Khairul, a Technical Expert in the field of Physical Protection System from Indonesia National Nuclear Agency (BATAN). He said that to VOA on Thursday (31/3) during the Nuclear Industry Summit, which held at the same time as the Nuclear Security Summit.

“In nuclear security, the adversaries are not only coming from the outside or external threat, what concern more nowadays are the adversaries that come from the inside or insider threat, that may come from unsatisfied or disgruntled employees or employees who are coerced or threatened by external parties,” said Khairul.

According to Khairul, insider can be prevented by applying nuclear security culture and implementing the human reliability program (trustworthiness).

Securing nuclear material so it wouldn’t be misuse was one of the focus of discussion of the world leaders in the 2016 Nuclear Security Summit which was held for 2 days.

US President, Barack Obama opened the 4th and the last Nuclear Security Summit on Thursday in Washington, acknowledging that the world is still facing the threats coming from North Korea Nuclear Weapon development and the possibility of ISIS militant group having the capability to detonate radioactive bombs.

The Indonesian delegation was headed by Vice President Jusuf Kalla. Speaking before the press in Washington on Thursday afternoon, the Vice President said that the world leaders must work together to secure nuclear.

“Basically we want to create a system to secure nuclear. Even though the nuclear is used for peace purposes, however the materials can still be diverted and misused. And to make it secured we have to discuss this together,” he said.

Thursday night, the vice president was scheduled to attend the dinner reception and to meet US President Barrack Obama to discuss the issue of nuclear security threat. [vm/al]
