Chairman Arima, Distinguished members of the Global Compact Japan Network,
Minasan konbanwa. (Good evening everyone)
Minasan ni oaidekite ureshii desu. (I am very happy to meet everybody)
I am delighted to be among you again.
With each visit I see you are even more active and engaged than before.
I am here in Japan, as you know, to pay tribute to the victims of the atomic bomb attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
The past two days have been profoundly moving.
