On April 27, 2023, Daisaku Ikeda issued a statement on the G7 Hiroshima Summit, the Ukraine Crisis and No First Use of Nuclear Weapons. Calling it “a prescription for hope,” Ikeda also urges all people to work together transcending national differences for achieving world peace. Ikeda writes “As the G7 leaders revisit the actual consequences of a nuclear weapon detonation and the bitter lessons of the nuclear era, I urge that they initiate earnest deliberations on making pledges of No First Use so that their shared recognition of the inadmissible nature of nuclear weapons can find expression in changed policies.”
