The head of the Council of the European Union (EU), Charles Michel, called the threat of Russia’s use of nuclear weapons in Ukraine a “global security threat”.
Michel, who is in Japan as part of his official visit, visited the city of Hiroshima in the country’s southwest and called on “the world to get rid of weapons of mass destruction.”
Michel, who visited the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum, signed the guest book and noted that Hiroshima made him feel “a strong determination to destroy nuclear weapons.”
Speaking about Russia’s attacks on Ukraine, Michel said that Moscow’s threat to use nuclear weapons is “a threat to global security, is shameful and unacceptable.”
“There are international principles and global organizations for nuclear disarmament and arms control in the world. We must develop and update them to maintain peace and security,” Michel said.
Michel visited the Atomic Victims Memorial, where he met with Hiroshima Mayor Matsui Kazumi and the atomic bomb survivors known as “hibakusha”.
