J. Miller Discusses Hiroshima Visit with VOA

Media Coverage | June 01, 2016

J. Berkshire Miller, EastWest Institute Fellow for the China, East Asia and United States (CEAUS) Program, discusses the visit to Hiroshima, Japan, by U.S. President Barack Obama. Miller makes his comments to Voice of America (VOA).

In an interview that aired on May 26, Miller said President Obama's "historic" visit was the culmination of what the U.S. had been slowly building towards.

Miller said the visit could be seen from two perspectives. Many would see it as insensitive towards war veterans, he argued, but many would also see it as a model for Obama's nuclear non-proliferation efforts.

Obama paid a visit to Hiroshima on May 27, becoming the first sitting American president to do so.
