Sunday’s Asahi wrote that the Burmese government has ratified the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test Ban Treaty thanks in part to Japan’s intense lobbying, noting that the Southeast Asian country took the step to address any suspicion within the international community about its former military regime’s desire to acquire nuclear weapons so as to attract greater foreign investment for economic development. Foreign Minister Kishida will make an announcement on the Burmese decision during a CTBT-related conference to be held in New York on Sept. 21.
