UN Calls for Global Nuclear Disarmament As Japan Marks Hiroshima Bombing Anniversary - Tasnim News Agency

The UN chief warned of a new nuclear arms race during a solemn event at Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park attended by hundreds of people at a ceremony marking the 77th anniversary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima.

“Nuclear weapons are nonsense. Three-quarters of a century later, we must ask what we’ve learned from the mushroom cloud that swelled above this city in 1945”, Antonio Guterres urged during the solemn event at Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park attended by dozens of people, including hibakusha, young peace activists, Japan’s prime minister and other local authorities.

The UN secretary general warned that a new arms race is picking up speed and world leaders are enhancing stockpiles at a cost of hundreds of billions of dollars with almost 13,000 nuclear weapons currently held in arsenals around the world.
