Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe says the country will never possess, or even consider possessing, nuclear weapons.

Abe spoke to reporters after a memorial ceremony for the atomic bombing of Hiroshima on Saturday.

He was asked about remarks by new Defense Minister Tomomi Inada that Japan should not consider the possession of nuclear arms at the moment.

Abe said that Inada's comment is consistent with the government's policy.

He said Japan, as the only country to have experienced atomic bombings, firmly upholds its 3 non-nuclear principles.

Abe said, "It is our responsibility to make continuous and determined efforts toward a world without nuclear weapons."

Abe was also asked about the possibility of the constitution being revised. He said the matter should be discussed in a quiet environment, referring to Diet panels reviewing the constitution. He said lawmakers, regardless of their party affiliation, should express their views in serious discussions, leading to a national debate
