Hiroshima mayor calls on Japan to serve as a bridge
Those who attend will call on the United States to join the countries that passed a legal treaty prohibiting nuclear weapons at the United Nations on July 7, a press release said.
But Japan, together with the world's nuclear weapon states and other countries under the U.S. umbrella have recently refused to participate in the United Nations treaty.
Japanese city Hiroshima on Sunday marked the 72nd anniversary of World War II atomic bombing that killed 140,000 people. Japan is the only country to have suffered atomic attacks, in 1945.
This outcome was the result of a global campaign focused on the unconditional unacceptability of the use of nuclear weapons, the Secretary-General noted, acknowledging the invaluable contribution made by Hiroshima'smessage of peace and the heroic efforts of hibakushas, or survivors of the atomic bombs.
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, however, avoided any controversy saying, "For us to truly realize a 'world without nuclear weapons, ' the participation of both nuclear weapon states and non-nuclear weapon states is necessary".
