A Terrible Disaster
August 6th and 9th, 1945 are reminiscent of painful crimes against the Japanese people in the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which should in fact be called one of the most horrible crimes against humanity in the twentieth century.
The anti-human catastrophe occurred with the command of the President-in-Office of the United States, Harry Truman. This act killed tens of thousands of innocent people and destroyed natural resources with two bombs within a few days. Until now, this crime has been the only case of using nuclear weapon against humanity in the world.
While we are commemorating the victims on the occasion of the seventy-third anniversary of the atomic bombings, there has not been any positive action to prevent the recurrence of such catastrophes. During their visit to Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park in 2016, the former President and the former Secretary of States of the United States only paid homage to the victims and they did not apologize for this crime after seventy-one years which is cannot be a good indication of the progress of human rights and human dignity in the world.
The Association for the Defending Victims of Terrorism on the anniversary of the tragedy, while condemning its perpetrators and expressing its sympathy with the affected families, expects the international community, governments and human rights activists to take more effective measures to prevent the proliferation of nuclear weapons and prevent recurrence of such catastrophes.
