G7 foreign ministers sign anti-nuclear declaration in Hiroshima
The document aims to revitalize the momentum for the global effort toward making a world without nuclear weapons
Ministers of G7 member countries signed the documents after the two-day long meeting in Japan, where they discussed the most burning issues in politics, economy and global security.
They condemned recent terrorist attacks in a range of countries such as Turkey, Belgium, Nigeria, Ivory Coast and Pakistan and pledged to complete a G7 action plan to counter terrorism that the leaders of their nations can adopt at their summit in late May. The ministers also reiterated their condemnation to Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea, and urged Russia to observe the recent Minsk agreement to resolve the dispute.
Meeting in Hiroshima, which was devastated by an American nuclear bomb in 1945, the issue of nuclear non-proliferation took on special significance at the annual meeting of the top diplomats from Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United States. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry became the highest-ranking American official to visit Hiroshima since World War II when the foreign ministers visited the Hiroshima peace memorial cenotaph to lay flowers for the victims of the American atomic bombing in 1945.
