UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon's visit to Nagasaki has strengthened his desire to push for an end to nuclear weapons.
UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon said, "My visit here strengthened my convictions that these weapons must be outlawed either by a nuclear weapons convention or by a framework of separate mutually reinforcing instruments. I urge all nations to support my five point action plan for nuclear disarmament and to agree to negotiate nuclear weapon convention at the earliest possible date."
Earlier on Thursday, Ban visited the Peace Museum where he was shown some of the artifacts recovered after the bombing of Nagasaki on August 9th, 1945. He also met with survivors, who often serve as volunteer guides at the museum. He also laid a wreath at a monument built over where the world's second and last atomic bomb was detonated.
