The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) on Thursday said a workshop on building new synergies on nuclear security is being organized by India in cooperation with the UN Office of Disarmament Affairs from Nov 30-Dec 1.

The workshop will be inaugurated by Foreign Secretary Ranjan Mathai, who is also India's Sherpa for the Nuclear Security Summit.

India's initiative to host this workshop was announced by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh during the Nuclear Security Summit in Seoul in March this year.

The workshop will be attended by all countries represented on the UNSC as well as new incoming members, UN, IAEA and representatives of the Committee established under UNSC Resolution 1540.

The holding of the workshop coincides with India's presidency of the UN Security Council this month.
