European Council President Donald Tusk visited Nagasaki on 26 June to mourn victims of the 1945 U.S. atomic bombing ahead of a Group of 20 summit to be held in Osaka on 28-29 June.
“It is you, the leaders of world superpowers, who are responsible for the fact that the lesson of Nagasaki will not be in vain.”, said Tusk in his speech.
During his visit of Hiroshima, later in the day, Tusk stated: “Hiroshima is an anticipation of the end of the world, that – if we forget about this tragedy – may happen at any time. This is why it is so important that the testimony of Hiroshima will last as long as possible, and will reach as many people as possible.”
