Participation in the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons "In the Town of Death in an Instant with the Atomic Bomb" A-bomb survivor appeal September 25, 19:19

The Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, which was adopted by the United Nations three years ago, had 45 ratifying countries in September, and there are five more countries, up to the 50 countries required for its entry into force. It shows the position of not participating as "damaging the legitimacy of nuclear deterrence."
In the lecture, Mr. Kido said, "The atomic bomb instantly transformed Hiroshima and Nagasaki into a'death town', and nuclear weapons are absolutely evil weapons. If the treaty comes into effect, it will be confirmed worldwide and ratified. Even in a country without it, it will be difficult to use and develop, leading to true peace. "Japan should join the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.
A-bomb survivors who visited the venue said, "I want the abolition of nuclear weapons to be realized by the entry into force of the treaty," or "I must eliminate nuclear weapons, and I am not convinced that Japan, the only country exposed to the war, will not participate in the treaty."
