This morning the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe paid a visit to the Memorial at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii locations that was bombed on 6 December 1941 by the Japanese resulting in the entry of the United States into World War II.
Abe said he was very sorry for all the victims of the attack and said he hopes to be able to continue in the future to work with the Government of the United States in a climate of peace, serenity and mutual trust, but he has not formally apologizes in the name of the Japanese Government. A few months ago even Obama had gone to visit the Memorial in Hiroshima and Nagasaki and said he was shocked by the brutality of the effects on the landscape and on humans of two atomic bombs but even he had not submitted an official apology of the U.S. Government.
Soon Donald Trump officially takes office in the White House and the rapprochement between United States and Japan will continue because Abe has already met with the new President and after an interview lasted 90 minutes said he was certain that cooperation between the two countries will always be at the top of the list of priorities. “Trump is a leader we can trust,” said the premier.
With this gesture of détente, good wishes to everyone for a happy and peaceful 2017.
