By Agencies In Washington ( China Daily ) Updated: 2016-05-11 08:25:55

President Barack Obama will travel to Hiroshima this month in the first visit by a sitting US president to the site where the United States dropped an atomic bomb.

The White House said Obama will visit along with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe during a previously scheduled visit to Japan.

Obama's visit will bolster his call for denuclearization and honor victims of the bombing that killed 140,000 Japanese on Aug 6, 1945.
