【看英文中國郵報學英文】今(6)是日本廣島原子彈爆炸74周年,廣島市長再次呼籲廢除核武。

Hiroshima has marked the 74th anniversary of the atomic bombing of the city with its mayor renewing calls for eliminating such weapons.

廣島市長松本一實於週二發表和平演說,提及現在有許多以自我中心的政權崛起,並呼籲各國領導一同建立一個無核武的世界。

Mayor Kazumi Matsui raised concerns in his peace address Tuesday about the rise of self-centered politics in the world and urged leaders to steadily work toward achieving a world without atomic weapons.

松本一實要求日本政府代表核爆倖存者簽訂聯合國禁止核武條約。

He demanded Japan’s government represent the wills of atomic bombing survivors and sign a U.N. nuclear weapons ban treaty.

1945年8月6日美國在廣島投下原子彈,造成14萬人死亡。三天後又在長崎投下另一枚核彈導致七萬人喪生。經歷兩次核爆後,日本投降並結束了第二次世界大戰。

The U.S. attack on Hiroshima on Aug. 6, 1945, killed 140,000 people. The bomb dropped three days later on Nagasaki killed another 70,000 before Japan’s surrender ended World War II.

最近,北韓也於廣島的紀念儀式前進行飛彈試射。在核武協商陷入僵局後,北韓已多次進行飛彈試射。

The Hiroshima anniversary ceremony came hours after North Korea launched projectiles into the sea. Its recent weapons tests follow a stalemate in negotiations over its nuclear weapons.
