Japan's absence in the diplomatic negotiations on the United Nations Treaty on the Nuclear Prohibition, which was adopted in July, was "incomprehensible to those of us living in the cities that suffered atomic bombings", Taue said.

In Hiroshima's ceremony Sunday, Mayor Kazumi Matsui didn't demand Japan join the treaty but urged the government to do "everything in its power to bridge the gap between the nuclear weapons and non-nuclear weapons states, thereby facilitating its ratification".

72 years later President Trump has threatened North Korea with a "fire and fury" response to Pyonyang's warning that it is considering carrying out missile strikes on the US Pacific territory of Guam.

I commend the people of Nagasaki and Hiroshima, led by the Hibakusha, in educating the worldwide community about the devastating humanitarian consequences of nuclear weapons.

"A strong sense of anxiety is spreading across the globe that in the not too distant future these weapons could actually be used again", Taue said in Nagasaki's Peace Park.

"It's Nagasaki Day today, when the world remembers the USA atomic bomb that hit a Japanese city unleashing a fire storm and winds of 9,000 miles an hour and killing 100,000 people".

Abe didn't mention the treaty in his speech like three days earlier in Hiroshima, also the site of a nuclear bombing in 1945.

According to the Associated Press, he said, "The nuclear threat will not end as long as nations continue to claim that nuclear weapons are essential for their national security".

The outspoken mayor praised the atomic bombing survivors, or "hibakusha", for their lifelong devotion to the effort.

He also urged the central government to reconsider the policy of relying on the USA nuclear umbrella and "reaffirm to the world its commitment to the pacifist ethos of the Constitution of Japan, which firmly renounces war". Many died immediately while others succumbed to injuries or radiation-related illnesses weeks, months and years later.
