Austrian chancellor visits Hiroshima
Published in Saudi Press Agency on 17 - 02 - 2019

Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz has visited the atomic-bombed city of Hiroshima in western Japan. As foreign minister, Kurz had a hand in the adoption of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.
Kurz arrived in Japan on Friday to commemorate the 150 anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between Japan and Austria. He traveled to Hiroshima on Saturday. He had specifically requested the visit.
At the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum, he watched a video that showed how the city had been reduced to rubble in an instant. He wrote in the visitors' book that he will continue to fight for nuclear disarmament.
After the visit, Kurz expressed sadness at learning about the bomb's destructive power. He said he would renew his commitment to ridding the world of atomic weapons. He said he is determined to help more nations recognize the importance of the treaty and encourage them to sign and ratify it.
Nuclear powers such as the United States and Russia, as well as Japan and other countries protected under the nuclear umbrella, have not signed the treaty.
