In this chapter, representatives in different organizations involved with the NPT summarize the current stage of nuclear development in their respective countries, address their interpretation of security culture and measures of domestic branches to tackle elements of protection, and outline individual needs and concerns for the future. Diva Puig (Uruguay) comments on the necessity of nuclear protection in regards to national and regional security, pointing to his knowledge of examples of nuclear projects in Latin America. Ahmed Benarbia (Morocco) declares the importance of building a stronger network of anti-terrorist practices and information sharing between countries, reminding the audience of Morocco's own terrorist attack after September 11th. Kornstantin Kovalev (Russia) argues for the improvement of the oversight process in nuclear facilities as it can reveal violations in the system and therefore help to eliminate them. Gennadiy Pshakin (Russia) highlights how nuclear terrorism is impossible if terrorists have no access to nuclear material, and therefore a greater implementation of teaching official agencies responsible for nuclear accounting control and protection is necessary to strengthen security culture. Bjorn Sandstrom (Sweden) discusses how Swedish nuclear safety and security culture evolved from strong radiation protection research in the country, highlighting how vast knowledge built the successful future framework for its nuclear system. Sergiy Kondratov (Ukraine) stresses the importance of international assistance in nuclear security, considering all states do not have the same capacity to execute particular reformations due to political instability or lack of funding.
