Nuke ban treaty: No, says Suga

December 12, 2017


Day after ICAN Nobel ceremony, Suga reiterates Japan will not sign nuke ban treaty



The day after the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) received the Nobel Peace Prize, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga reiterated that Japan would not sign the U.N. Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.

"The government will work to influence both nuclear and non-nuclear states. The nuclear weapons ban treaty is a different approach to this," Suga stated at the Dec. 11 news conference.

Suga also praised ICAN's Nobel win, stating, "We share the same goal of eliminating nuclear arms. (The government of Japan) is very pleased that this will boost awareness and momentum for nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation."

On Dec. 10, Foreign Minister Taro Kono also welcomed ICAN's Nobel honor. He added, "It is essential to steadily seek ways to advance nuclear disarmament realistically, while responding appropriately to real threats, including North Korea's nuclear and missile development programs."
