Komeito House of Councillors member Nobuhiro Miura toured an exhibition on nuclear abolition held at the Tsudanuma campus of Chiba Institute of Technology (CIT) and exchanged views with the event’s organizing student group.

The exhibition is based on the results of a survey conducted among 187 CIT students, one showing that some 80% of those polled expressed concern over the possible use of nuclear weapons and more than half of the respondents citing the need to abolish such arms and dismantle existing warheads.

Speaking with the student organizers, Miura acknowledged that opposition to nuclear weapons among young people was widespread and reiterated Komeito’s commitment to abolishing the weapons on a global basis.
