Ambassador's participation at the 64th Hiroshima Peace Memorial Ceremony, August 6th

Ambassador Mrkic participated in the memorial ceremony devoted to the victims of the atomic bomb, an abhorrent weapon used for the first time against many civilians, who perished instantly or were later affected by the radiation.

The whole leadership of Japan, headed by the Prime Minister Taro Aso, and great number of guests and representatives of diplomatic corps were also present at the ceremony.

As always, the whole event passed in a dignified atmosphere and emotional remembrance of those who lost their lives.
