  To-day is an auspicious day for the Union of Myanmar. It is indeed an important day in the history of our nation. For to-day, we received the Stone for Peace of Hiroshima which the people from that city has so graciously sent to us. For this warm and friendly gesture, we the children and the people of Myanmar would like to express profound thanks to the people of Hiroshima.   I am happy that the Republic of Bulgaria is one of the 30 states being offered such a kind consideration and I would like to emphasize here that we accept this gift at the initiative of the citizens of Hiroshima as a symbol of peace and an expression of sincere friendship between our two peoples.

  THIS MEMENTO, CARVED FROM PAVEMENTS DAMAGED DURING THE ATOMIC BOMBING OF HIROSHIMA, EVEN IN ALL ITS BEAUTY, IS A PAINFUL REMINDER OF THE DANGERS OF LETTING THE MEANEST INSTINCTS OF THE HUMAN BEING GO UNFETTERED.   Nuestros queridos amigos japoneses nos han invitado a acompañarlos en esta iniciativa por la paz, ya que Hiroshima no enmudece, sus hijos estoicos como esta piedra que hoy colocamos, se levantan con la esperanza de un mundo fraterno y sin guerras, teniéndola más bien como símbolo de paz en cada monumento que se erige alrededor del mundo.
