The Japanese city of Nagasaki observed the dead of the atomic bombing over the city 76 years ago with a minute’s silence. Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga called on all countries in the world to renounce nuclear weapons at the subsequent memorial event.

Japan also wants to continue to adhere to its three non-nuclear principles from 1967. Accordingly, the country will neither manufacture nor own or import nuclear weapons.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, only 500 guests were admitted to the event, including the Mayor of Nagasaki. He, too, spoke out in favor of a world without nuclear weapons.

On August 9, 1945, an American B-29 bomber dropped a 4.5-ton plutonium bomb called “Fat Man”. More than 70,000 people were killed. Many survivors suffered permanent injuries and chronic illness as a result of the explosions and radiation exposure. They are discriminated against in Japanese society. Three days before Nagasaki, the US dropped the first uranium atomic bomb on Hiroshima. 140,000 people were killed there in this world’s first atomic bomb.
