Japan needs to lead the global community toward "dialogue and cooperation for a world without nuclear weapons", the mayor said at the ceremony attended by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who later said his country's position not to join the treaty remains unchanged.

Foreign Minister Zarif in a tweet on Monday remembered the 73rd anniversary of the United States' nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, describing the USA as the "first and only" country to ever use nukes, "on an urban center of all targets". The worldwide representation was the third largest on record.

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss efforts to prevent future use of nuclear weapons are Director of the Peace Resource Center at Wilmington College, Dr. Tanya Maus; and Wilmington College Adjunct Professor of Public History and Cincinnati Art Museum Digital Specialist Rachel Ellison. U.S. Ambassador to Japan William F. Hagerty IV made his first appearance at the ceremony since he was sworn in for the current post in July of past year.

Japanese high school pupils have produced a five-minute virtual reality experience that recreates the sights and sounds of Hiroshima immediately before, during and after the United States dropped an atomic bomb on the city 73 years ago.

Nail-biting moment giant great white SHARK leaps at researcher
It opened its mouth right at my feet... "Ho! Holy crap", Skomal yells, as the shark falls away. Beachgoers are being urged to exercise caution due to at least one shark lurking in the area.

The anniversary comes amid hopes to denuclearise North Korea after Kim Jong Un and President Donald Trump made vague aspirational statements of denuclearising the peninsula when they met in Singapore in June.

On the other hand, the mayor pointed out, in an apparent reference to the US administration of President Donald Trump and other world powers that, "certain countries are blatantly proclaiming self-centered nationalism and modernizing their nuclear arsenals, rekindling tensions that had eased with the end of the Cold War". "I want Japan to work toward eliminating nuclear weapons", Ota added.

But in order to bring this treaty into effect, 50 nations must ratify it, of which only 14 have done so.

"Maintaining its three nonnuclear principles, our country is determined to make strenuous efforts to serve as a bridge between both parties", Abe said.

U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres said in his message the legacy of Hiroshima is one of "resilience" and sought continued moral support from hibakusha survivors. "I never heard the words 'atomic bomb, '" he told NPR.
