He referred to the adoption in July 2017 of the treaty on the prohibition of nuclear weapons by United Nations member states as a positive development.

Japanese officials have criticised the treaty as deepening a divide between countries with and without nuclear arms.

He noted that adoption of the treaty was the outcome of the campaign focused on the unconditional unacceptability of the use of nuclear weapons.
