The U.N. conference on nuclear disarmament may not call on global leaders to visit Hiroshima and Nagasaki — as Japan wants them to do — after a Chinese envoy said Beijing would resist efforts by Tokyo to portray itself as a victim.

Three committees at the monthlong conference for parties to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty have been compiling elements they hope will become part of the final outcome document at the end of the intensive negotiations process.

A first draft produced by one of the committees last week noted the proposal that national leaders visit the Japanese cities on the 70th anniversary of the U.S atomic bombings and listen to the voices of survivors.
