To mark the entry into force of the CSC, the Permanent Mission of Japan co-hosted a ceremonial event together with the Permanent Missions of other Contracting Parties to the CSC, namely Argentina, Morocco, Romania, the United Arab Emirates and the United States. At this event, representatives of all Contracting Parties made a few remarks, and jointly conducted a ceremony called “Kagami-Biraki” (Sake Barrel-Breaking Ceremony).
Ambassador Kitano said “I am very pleased that today the CSC entered into force with Japan’s acceptance of this Convention. I believe this represents a significant step forward in our effort towards strengthening the global nuclear liability regime.”, “Today’s event co-organized by the six Contracting Parties to the CSC would be a great opportunity to renew our resolve to work together towards that common objective”.
