Exposition on Consequences of Nuclear Tests opened in Nur-Sultan
An international portable exhibition on the nuclear-free world has been opened in the capital of Kazakhstan. The exposition has been showcased in 20 countries. It is the first of its kind in the Commonwealth of Independent States.
Based on the UN data, the importance of entirely freeing the world from nuclear weapons has been emphasized.
The exhibition is dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the First President's decree on the closure of the Semipalatinsk nuclear test site and the 10th anniversary of the treaty on the Central Asian Nuclear-Weapon-Free Zone.
The event is organized by Japanese experts. Japan is Kazakhstan’s main partner in the fight against nuclear weapons. The two countries have experienced devastating consequences of nuclear explosions. The event will be last until October 13th.
Recently, the Library of First President of Kazakhstan has organized a large exhibition titled ‘The path to the Nuclear-Free World’ and an international conference in Tokyo. Meanwhile, Japanese colleagues have organized the exposition for Kazakhs to present the activities that they have done with regards to the nuclear-free world.
According to Vice President of Soka Gakkai International, Hirotsugu Terasaki, many people know about nuclear weapons, but they don’t realize how destructive these weapons are.
“Our main goal is to showcase the deadly weapons’ threats to humanity via the exhibition. Kazakhstan’s anti-nuclear weapon initiatives are well-known and the country lead by example. Kazakhstan is one of the countries that lead the international movement on non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction in Tokyo,” he added.
