On 5 May, SIPRI received a delegation from Hiroshima Prefectural Government, led by Governor Hidehiko Yuzaki.

During the meeting a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the two parties, aimed at contributing to the enhanced awareness and understanding of nuclear weapons, with ambitions for a more peaceful world.

The initiated dialogue between SIPRI and Hiroshima Prefecture will focus on mutually agreed research projects to counter the declining respect for nuclear weapons, and seeing what lessons can be learned from the experience of countries that have terminated their nuclear weapons programmes.
