The world convention called for by organizations such as Japan and the United States was scheduled to be held in New York, USA, but it was canceled due to the spread of the new coronavirus infection, and it was held online instead.

At the World Congress held on the night of the 25th of Japan time, Seiko Wada, Deputy Secretary General of the Japan Atomic Bomb Victim Group Association, which was bombed in Nagasaki at the age of 1 year and 10 months, testified.

Mr. Wada said repeatedly that his mother said, "The bodies left on the road were thrown away and collected, and in the open space, I was overwhelmed by the smell of burning from morning till night, and I lost my sense as a person. "The average age of the A-bomb survivors was 83 years old, and the suffering was so deep that it is still ongoing," he said.

In addition, it was reported at the tournament that the number of signatures calling for the abolition of nuclear weapons by the Japan Coop, etc. exceeded 10.5 million so far.

Lastly, the United Nations High Representative for Disarmament in Nakamitsui said, "The very large number of signatures has given a great deal of weight to our work," and thanked the work for the abolition of nuclear weapons.
