Kerry Visits Hiroshima Memorial Seven Decades After A-Bomb

Secretary of State John Kerry along with foreign ministers of G7 nations laid a wreath at an altar inside the Hiroshima Peace Park Memorial, paying tribute to World War II atomic bomb victims as the highest-ranking U.S. official ever to visit the memorial.

Earlier, during a bilateral meeting with his Japanese counterpart, Kerry said: "While we will revisit the past and honor those who perished, this trip is not about the past. It's about the present and the future."
