THERE is no possibility of any presence of an atomic bomb left behind in the territories of Solomon Islands during the Second World War, Commander Etienne Mulder of Royal Australian Navy has assured the nation.
He was responding to a question during a media press conference on Thursday, which raises curiosity among citizens about any possibility of any atomic bomb being left behind after the war.
This dangerous weapon was used by the Americans to wipe out the entire city of Nagasaki and Hiroshima in Japan that subsequently led to the end of the World War II campaign of the Japanese.
“No possibility of atomic bomb presence in the Solomon Islands,” Mulder said.
He added the bombs collected and safely disposed did not include any atomic bomb and there is no possibility of these biological weapons to be found in Solomon Islands.
Another navy officer onboard explained that those dangerous weapons were banned to be used during the war and even today, but since the attack on Pearl Harbour was beyond human senses, it was used in retaliation only in Japan and not in other countries invaded by the Japanese.
