President Obama‘s Air Force One has landed at Iwakuni Marine Air Station, ahead of a historic visit to Hiroshima, the first by a sitting U.S. President to the site of the world’s first atomic bombing.
“This afternoon I will visit Hiroshima,” Obama said at the base.
“This is an opportunity to honor the memory of all those who were lost in World War II. It’s a chance to pursue peace and security, a world where nuclear weapons would no longer be necessary. And it’s a testament to how even the most painful divides can be bridged.”
