On Saturday, the Japanese city of Hiroshima paused to remember
the 77th anniversary of the US nuclear strike that is believed to have killed 140,000 people during World War II.
Accepting the existing quo and giving up the concept of nonviolent conflict resolution
puts humankind's basic survival in peril, according to Matsui.
Visiting Hiroshima or Nagasaki would allow global leaders to
"personally see the repercussions of the use of nuclear weapons," according to the mayor.
I want them to recognise that getting rid of nuclear weapons is the
only assured method to safeguard the lives and property of their citizens, he added.
Since international leaders are increasingly worried that a third nuclear genocide may happen
in the midst of an invasion of Ukraine, Russia and Belarus were not invited to the discussions.
