The United Nations Secretary-General, Ban Ki-Moon, has met survivors of the world's first atomic bomb attack in the Japanese city of Hiroshima, on the 65th anniversary of the event.
Friday's gathering came after the annual commemoration for the nuclear tragedy. Ban said he hoped the survivors' stories will help propel governments to move to a nuclear free world.
Ban's is the first time a sitting UN Secretary General has attended the ceremony. He said he wanted to listen to what survivors had to say.
Ban Ki-Moon, UN Secretary-General, said, "They have given me a good direction, what the United Nations as secretary general and the world powers should do in helping them realize their dreams and aspirations to see the end of nuclear weapons."
