Japanese Prime Minister Visiting Pearl Harbor

Japanese Prime Minister Visiting Pearl Harbor

 

HONOLULU (AP) - The leaders of the U.S. and Japan are coming together today at Pearl Harbor - the place where Japan bombed the U.S. in 1941, throwing America into World War II.

President Barack Obama will join Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at the memorial that rests on top of the sunken USS Arizona.

Abe will be the first Japanese leader to visit the memorial, and he'll be joined by President Barack Obama, who's been vacationing in Hawaii with his family.

The Japanese government says Abe will not be apologizing for Pearl Harbor.

Obama did not apologize for Hiroshima when he visited Japan in May.
