Kishida expresses gratitude to Ambassador for President’s successful visit to Hiroshima

Yomiuri, Mainichi, and Nikkei gave inside-page play to a meeting held yesterday between Foreign Minister Kishida and Ambassador Kennedy, at which the minister stated: “As a citizen of Hiroshima  and a minister who is elected from nuclear ground zero, I am extremely pleased with the visit to Hiroshima by the sitting president.” He expressed appreciation to the Ambassador for “giving various advice and support” in arranging the President’s trip to Hiroshima. The Japanese official also voiced his determination to pursue nuclear disarmament by saying: “I would like to cooperate with the U.S. to create a world without nuclear weapons.” In response, the Ambassador said: “Thank you so much for the incredibly warm reception the Hiroshima community gave President Obama.” The Ambassador also reportedly said the U.S.-Japan alliance has made further progress.
