The Hague (ANTARA News) - Indonesian Vice President Boediono has expressed his satisfaction with the results of the Nuclear Security Summit held in the Hague on March 24-25.

"The results and implementation were very good, it should become an example," the vice president said here on Thursday.

In a communique reached by the leaders in the two-day event to seek ways to boost nuclear security around the globe, the leaders agreed to increase global cooperation and prevent nuclear material from falling into the hands of terrorists.

Boediono said he was particularly happy that the Summit, attended by 58 world leaders, accepted Indonesias suggestion that every nation has a law on nuclear security.

The Foreign Ministrys Director General for Multilateral Affairs Hasan Kleib, who accompanied Boediono during the Summit, told the press that the government will submit a bill on Nuclear Security to the Parliament in 2015. The bill is currently being discussed by concerned ministries.

Earlier Foreign Affairs Minister Marty Natalegawa, who also accompanied Boediono during the Summit, said that the bill demonstrated that Indonesia was serious about its initiative in the Nuclear Security Summit.

"Indonesia has started and in 2015, the nation will have Law on Nuclear Security," the minister said.

Indonesia initiated a National Legislation Implementation Kit on Nuclear Security (NLIK) at the summit. "The national legislation model has been supported by 29 nations, and it will continue to increase," he said.

The 29 countries include the United States, South Korea, the Netherlands, Australia, and several European, African and Asian nations.

In early March 2014, Indonesia passed a law to ratify "the International Convention for the Suppression of Acts of Nuclear Terrorism (ICSANT)".(*)
