THE HAGUE - World leaders called on Tuesday for countries to minimise their stocks of highly-enriched nuclear fuel to help prevent al-Qaida-style militants from obtaining atomic bombs, at the end of a two-day summit overshadowed by the crisis in Ukraine.

Holding a third nuclear security summit since 2010, leaders from 53 countries - including US President Barack Obama - said much headway had been made in the past four years.

But they also made clear that many challenges remained and stressed the need for increased international cooperation to make sure highly-enriched uranium (HEU), plutonium and other radioactive substances did not fall into the wrong hands.
