On March 31st and April 1st 2016, more than 50 world leaders and international organizations gathered at the White House in Washington, D.C. for President Obama’s fourth Nuclear Security Summit. Here you can watch them all arrive, including the King of Jordan who had the hardest-balling limo of the lot by far.

This 47-minute clip captures most of the dignitaries and representatives who attended the Summit, mainly arriving in Suburbans registered to the U.S. Government. But a few brought their own motorcades.


King Abdullah II and his Jordanian entourage are the highlight of the show at the very end, with their six-door stretched and raised Ford Excursion followed closely by a Mercedes Sprinter. Sorry, of course I mean “Royal Sprinter” as the van is clearly labeled on the door.

President Obama has called nuclear terrorism “the most immediate and extreme threat to global security,” and this annual Summit has been part of his effort to address it.

The Summit cites “The installation of radiation detection equipment at 329 international border crossings, airports, and seaports,” and “improved ability to locate smuggled material, find nuclear smugglers, and bring them to justice,” as results of the event.

This year, the United States and China released a joint statement coming out of the Summit promising to continue collaborating on the prevention of nuclear smuggling.

Real question; if they decide to bring their own motorcade vehicles, are they transporting them from their country (if so, how), or do they just have a set they keep here in storage somewhere? Hoping for some aviation porn to get worked into the answer...
