On the 7th, just three years after the adoption of the Nuclear Weapons Convention by the United Nations, a Canadian-exposed survivor Saroko Seturo, who contributed to the adoption, made a speech online, saying, "We must bring in more countries and put the treaty into effect. I have to do it."

"I will not give up. I will apply pressure and move forward. It is necessary to draw 12 more countries into effectuating the treaty," said Sir Loo, and 38 ratification countries are now in force. We called for cooperation in the nuclear abolition movement to reach 50 countries early.
