On 29 July the Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun organised a symposium on the Road to Nuclear Abolition. Susi spoke at the symposium about ways to use the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons as a path towards verifiable and irreversible nuclear disarmament. She also elaborated on the numerous ways the treaty is already having an impact by delegitimizing nuclear weapons- particularly across the financial sector.
The trip also included a visit to the Nagasaki A-Bomb museum as well as an opportunity to pay respects to the victims of the atomic bombing by laying a wreath at the cenotaph.
The Asahi Shiumbun covered the event here.
