Washington's new ambassador to Tokyo, Caroline Kennedy, visited Nagasaki on Tuesday and paid tribute at a memorial to those killed when the United States dropped its second atomic bomb on Japan.
"I am deeply moved by my visit here," said Kennedy, the lone surviving child of John F. Kennedy, who was assassinated in Dallas 50 years ago last month.
"President Kennedy was very proud that he was able to start the process of nuclear disarmament and all of our family shares that commitment," she said.
"President Obama also has been working very hard on this issue."
