UNITED NATIONS, Aug 6 (APP): United Nations Secretary-General Antonio
Guterres has urged all states to intensify their efforts in the shared pursuit of a nuclear-weapons-free world.
“Our dream of a world free of nuclear weapons remains far from
reality,” Guterres said in his message delivered on his behalf by High Representative for Disarmament Affairs Izumi Nakamitsu at an annual
memorial held in Hiroshima, Japan, on Sunday that marked the 72nd anniversary of the world’s first atomic bombing in Hiroshima that
destroyed a portion of the city and its inhabitants.
