"Working towards the complete abolishment of nuclear weapons, the day was established to facilitate collective efforts towards this goal. Nations and people all around the world are encouraged to honour a cessation of violence and hostilities for the duration of the Day. I join with the Mayors of cities everywhere by calling upon them and their citizens to abolish these weapons and observe this day of peace."
