Nagasaki no minasama, konnichi wa. [Hello, everyone.]
Minasama-ni ome-ni kakarete, kouei desu. [It is an honour to meet you.]
I am humbled, as Secretary-General of the United Nations, to be here with you to commemorate the women, men and children killed by the nuclear attack on Nagasaki on 9 August 1945.
I convey my deepest respect and condolences to everyone here today, and to all the victims and survivors of the atomic bombs.
