Yamaguchi speaks at party nuclear abolition-youth committees meeting
July 10 , 2022
Among the initiatives under examination was a proposal co-developed by Nagasaki University’s Atomic Bomb Disease Institute and Research Center for Nuclear Weapons Abolition (RECNA) and various Japanese NGOs. The proposal will be introduced at the 2022 Vienna Conference on the Humanitarian Impact of Nuclear Weapons on June 20 prior to the First Meeting of States Parties to the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons held on June 21-23.
In his address, Yamaguchi described the Humanitarian Impact conference as “the perfect opportunity” to advance discussions on ways to abolish nuclear arms as Japan could provide actual experiences of people who survived the devastating effects of an atomic attack.
