Obama to visit Hiroshima, won’t apologize for World War Two bombing

Washington/Tokyo: Barack Obama will become the first sitting US president to visit Hiroshima in Japan later this month, but he will not apologize for the United States’ dropping of an atomic bomb on the city in World War Two, the White House said on Tuesday.

Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize early in his presidency in 2009 in part for his commitment to nuclear non-proliferation, Obama on 27 May will visit the site of the world’s first nuclear bomb attack with Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
