Japan marks 72 anniversary of deadly nuclear attack


Tokyo, August 6 (TNS): Japan on Sunday marked 72 anniversary of deadly attack since the world’s first nuclear dropped on Hiroshima.
Japan is the only country in world which suffered atomic attacks, in 1945 by United States.
Speaking at the annual ceremony at Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said his country keep trying to push for a world without nuclear arms in a way that all countries can endorse it.
“For us to truly pursue a world without nuclear weapons, we need participation from both nuclear-weapons and non-nuclear weapons states,” Abe said in his speech on the occasion.
“Our country is committed to leading the international community by encouraging both sides” to make progress toward abolishing nuclear arms, Japanese PM said.
Japan suffered two nuclear attacks at the end of the World War II by the United States — in Hiroshima on August 6, 1945 and in Nagasaki three days later.
The bombings claimed the lives of 140,000 people in Hiroshima and 74,000 people in Nagasaki. Some died immediately while others succumbed to injuries or radiation-related illnesses weeks, months and years later.
Japan announced its surrender in World War II on August 15, 1945.
