Japan still undecided on whether to join negotiations on Nuclear Weapons Convention

NHK reported online on remarks made to the press on Wednesday by Japanese Ambassador to the UN Bessho, who commented on the planned start of negotiations on the framing of the Nuclear Weapons Convention at the UN headquarters next week. The Japanese diplomat said: “While Japan has expressed opposition to the commencement of the negotiations, we are still considering whether or not to take part in them.” The network added that Japan’s role in pursuing nuclear disarmament will be called into question in the negotiations on a treaty aimed at prohibiting nuclear weapons at a time when the Trump administration plans to strengthen U.S. nuclear capabilities.
