On April 23, US Secretary of State John Kerry and his Lithuanian counterpart Linas Linkevicius signed a bilateral agreement to advance protection against nuclear and radiological smuggling. The US commits to enhancing "Lithuania's capabilities to prevent, detect, and respond to nuclear smuggling incidents," the agreement, the 11th of this kind and the 2nd in the EU-NATO area, read. Such an initiative resulted from the two government's conviction that nuclear smuggling is a critical and ongoing global threat that requires a coordinated, global response. "It's a very important step," said Mr. Kerry, and it participates in "keeping nuclear materials out of the hands of terrorists, out of bad actors," the Secretary added.
