The head of Interpol says his organization has documented illicit trafficking of nuclear materials in more than 2,500 cases.
In a written interview with the Seoul-based Yonhap News Agency, Interpol chief, Ronald Noble, said Sunday that Interpol is sharing the data with its 1-hundred-90 member nations to better combat threats of nuclear terror worldwide.
Saying that a great calamity will ensue if terrorists obtain nuclear materials, Noble stressed the importance of cooperation among nations.
Interpol will attend the 2012 Seoul Nuclear Security Summit, slated for March 26 through the 27th.
Ahead of the Seoul summit, Noble is set to attend a preparatory meeting in New Delhi this coming Monday and Tuesday.
