Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama on Thursday called for world peace on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan.
Dalai Lama urged governments, organizations and individuals to ‘rededicate themselves to making the achievement of peace the centre-piece of our lives’.
It is worthwhile to mention here that Japan on Thursday remembered the victims of the bombings on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the world’s first atomic bomb attack.
“Despite many great developments that also took place, the 20th century was an era of violence in which some 200 million people were killed including the horrific use of nuclear weapons.
Now, in our increasingly interdependent world, we have a chance to make this a more peaceful century,” he added.
