Hiroshima mayor calls on Japan to serve as a bridge

Peace activists will remember Hiroshima, Nagasaki bombings, call for ban on nuclear weapons

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's message 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".

Donald Trump's police brutality comments 'making a joke' - White House
Last month, Trump's eldest son insisted that his 2016 meeting with the pro-Kremlin lawyer was about adoption of Russian children. Mr Trump Jr later revealed he had agreed to meet her after being told he could receive damaging material on Hillary Clinton .

"Today, a single bomb can cause even greater damage than the bombs dropped 72 years ago".

Using last year's peace declaration as a reference point, Matsui repeated his description of nuclear weapons as "absolute evil".

"Yet our dream of a world free of nuclear weapons remains far from a reality", he said.

Since then, nuclear proliferation has created a unsafe modern world, with many nations now capable of using nuclear weapons on their neighbor.

"The states possessing nuclear weapons have special responsibility to undertake concrete and irreversible steps on nuclear disarmament", Guterres stressed.
