Humanity is “playing with a loaded gun” in the context of the current crises with nuclear connotations, warned the UN secretary general in Hiroshima on the occasion of the 77th anniversary on Saturday of the American atomic bombing of Japan. At an annual ceremony held in the Japanese city to honor the victims of the 1945 bombing, Antonio Guterres made a strong appeal to world leaders to remove nuclear weapons from their arsenals.
77 years ago, “tens of thousands of people were suddenly killed in this city. Women, children and men were cremated in an infernal fire,” he said. Today, “crises with strong nuclear connotations are spreading rapidly, from the Middle East to the Korean Peninsula to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Humanity is playing with a loaded gun,” said Antonio Guterres, reiterating the warnings he issued this week at a conference of countries signatories to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) in New York.
