Charles Michel from Hiroshima: Global Security ‘Threatened’


European Council President Charles Michel, who is visiting Hiroshima today, the first city ever hit by an atomic bomb, said global security was threatened by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the recent North Korean missile test.

According to Mr. Michel, Hiroshima recalls “how urgent it is” to strengthen international rules on nuclear disarmament and arms control.

“As we speak, global security is threatened. “Russia, a country with a nuclear arsenal (…) is attacking the sovereign state of Ukraine, making obscene and unacceptable references to the use of nuclear weapons,” the European Council president said during a speech in the city.
