Japan's Nagasaki commemorated the 72nd anniversary of the US atomic bombing on Wednesday, with its mayor calling for sticking to pacifist Constitution and reconsidering the policy of relying on the USA nuclear umbrella.

Speaking at a ceremony marking the nuclear tragedy of the World War II on Wednesday, Tomihisa Taue urged nuclear states to abandon such weapons and criticised Japan's government for not taking part in the global efforts towards a nuclear ban.

A memorial ceremony has been held in the Japanese city of Nagasaki, which still bears the scars of the U.S. military's devastating atomic bombing 72 years ago in the closing days of World War II. The bombing of Nagasaki three days later killed 70,000 more. But he said "Japan is determined to lead the worldwide community.by continuing to appeal to both sides" - ones with and without nuclear weapons.

We won't negotiate our nuclear arms with the UN - North Korea
Thailand is the world's No. 2 maker of hard drives, with US firm Seagate Technology and Western Digital among big players. The hermit kingdom's state TV sent a warning to the United States of America after the UN passed a new round of sanctions.

He implored Japan to join the treaty to prohibit nuclear weapons.

"This, we will certainly never forget: the fact that at 11:02 a.m. on August 9, 1945, an atomic bomb exploded in the air right above the hill where we are now assembled, killing and injuring 150,000 people", the mayor said.

Prime Minister Abe delivered a speech at the ceremony, in which he still made no mention of the historical background for the atomic bombings or Japan's aggressive war against its neighbors. Many died immediately while others succumbed to injuries or radiation-related illnesses weeks, months and years later.
