Kishida: Nuclear ban talks may deepen rift

https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/news/20170328_22/

 

Japan's Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida says the absence of nuclear powers from UN talks on a treaty to legally ban the weapons could be unrealistic.

Kishida spoke to reporters on Tuesday about why Japan, the only country to be a victim of the atomic bomb, is also not in attendance.

He said the negotiations without nuclear powers are unrealistic in helping to create a world without nuclear weapons and could further deepen the rift between nuclear and non-nuclear countries.

Kishida said it would be realistic to continue to patiently work within frameworks such as the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, where both sides take part.

He added he is confident that this is the shortest path to a world without nuclear weapons.
