Nagasaki mayor: ‘tangible and present crisis’ of nuclear warfare


In official comments on the anniversary of the Aug. 9, 1945 US atomic bombing of the Japanese┬ácity, the mayor of Nagasaki┬ásounded a note of alarm.┬áMayor Tomihisa Taue┬ástated: “In January this year, the leaders of the United States, Russia, the United Kingdom, France and China released a joint statement affirming that ‘a nuclear war cannot be won and must never be fought.’ However, the very next month Russia invaded Ukraine. Threats of using nuclear weapons have been made, sending shivers throughout the globe. The use of nuclear weapons is not a groundless fear┬ábut a tangible and present crisis.” (Japan Today)
