TOKYO, August 9 (Itar-Tass) - Nagasaki’s Mayor Tomihisa Taue on the 68th anniversary of the city’s bombing urged all countries to build a nuclear-free world and addressed Russia and the US asking them to reduce their nuclear arsenals.
“There are still over 17,000 nuclear warheads in the world. 90% of those belong to the U.S. and Russia. President Obama, President (Vladimir) Putin, please commit your countries to a speedy drastic reduction of your nuclear arsenal,” the mayor said.
The international community “should as quickly as possible eliminate nuclear weapons and follow the agreements,” he added. “We shall never forget the horrors of war and will not allow them happen again.”
Taue also spoke about the accident at the Fukushima-1 nuclear power plant.
“Nagasaki wishes Fukushima recovers and will continue to support it,” the mayor said.
