Looks like Hiroshima’s going to start its own foreign policy.
A prefectural official told The Japan Times on Tuesday that Hiroshima will conduct its own research and analysis of nuclear disarmament around the world and grade each country on its commitment to abandoning atomic weapons.
“This is the first time Hiroshima Prefecture has embarked on such a project,” the official said. The study is “a duty that Hiroshima must carry out,” the prefecture says on its website.
Experts are expected to start meeting soon and publish a final report in Japanese and English within the fiscal year.
