UN General Assembly 67th session: Statement delivered at the General Debate - Japan

A statement delivered to the 67th General Assembly annual General Debate by the Prime Minister of Japan. He said his country would continue sharing lessons learned since the great east Japan earthquake hit Japan in March last year in order to build disaster resilient societies and to make concrete contributions to nuclear safety. He added that the Fukushima Ministerial Conference on Nuclear Safety, to be held at the end of the year, and the 3rd United Nations World Conference on Disaster Reduction, which Japan aims to host in three years, would provide such an opportunity. “Humans must get wiser,” he said, and one part of such wisdom was learning to act on behalf of future generations.
