Defense Minister Fumio Kyuma said the dropping of atomic bombs on Japan during World War II "couldn't be helped," a news report said Saturday. "The bombing ended the war, and I think that couldn't be helped," Kyuma was quoted as saying in a speech by Kyodo News agency. Japan is the only nation to have suffered a nuclear attack, when the United States dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki near the end of World War II.
