  • Hiroshima marks 74th anniversary of atomic bombing

Seventy-four years since the first atom bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, the mayor of the iconic city has implored Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to sign a United Nations treaty banning nuclear weapons.

Matsui further stated that Abe should represent the survivors of the bombing and sign a United Nations nuclear weapons ban treaty.

"I call on the government of the only country to experience a nuclear weapon in war to accede to the hibakusha's request that the TPNW be signed and ratified", Mayor Kazumi Matsui said in his speech, referring to the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, which was passed in July 2017 with the support of 122 nations.

There is no stronger case for a world free of nuclear weapons than the stories of the survivors of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings, some of which I met previous year in Japan, he wrote on Twitter. He urged world leaders to visit the cities to better learn what happened.

The ongoing threat from atomic weapons in the region was demonstrated as nuclear-armed North Korea fired off two "unidentified projectiles" off its eastern coast - the latest in a series of tests.

This year's anniversary came after the U.S. on August 2 formally withdrew from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, a major Cold War-eranuclear arms control pact with Russian Federation signed in 1987, raising fears of a new arms race.

The atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945 in what became the closing days of World War II, and marked the first time a nuclear device had ever been used in war.

'With help from both sides, I will patiently encourage them to engage in dialogue and I am resolved to lead global efforts towards this end, ' he said.
