I am the President of the World Federation Movement Association, a private-sector organization dedicated to world federalism. The World Federation Movement Association hopes to conduct further activities to realize the World Federation in cooperation with the members of the Japanese Diet Committee for the World Federation. Almost 80 years have already passed since World War II ended in 1945. However, we believe the world is currently on the brink of the greatest crisis since the end of the Second World War. Nuclear weapons exist that are hundreds of times more powerful than the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. If they are used, the human race is in a state of ruin. It is good that we are only worrying about it now, but when I think of the destruction of the human race if it were to be used, I would like to be of some help through this work. In this sense, the World Federalist Movement must be united by the world, and the United Nations, especially the Security Council, must function effectively. Therefore, I believe that the responsibility of the World Federalist Movement is of the utmost importance above all else. In concluding my remarks, I would like to confirm this with all of you who are present today. (23/05,2024)
