Kerry in Hiroshima

Kerry in Hiroshima

G7 foreign ministers on Sunday began two days of talks in Hiroshima, with John Kerry's visit to the atom-bombed city --the first-ever by a US secretary of state -- overshadowing the broader agenda.
Kerry's landmark trip is seen as possibly paving the way for US President Barack Obama to become the first serving US president to visit the thriving metropolis next month, when he comes to Japan for the Group of Seven summit, AFP reported.
The meeting which started Sunday also includes top diplomats from nuclear-armed Britain and France, as well as Canada, Germany, Italy, host Japan and the European Union.
It is part of the run-up to the G7's rotating annual summit, scheduled this year from May 26-27 in another part of Japan.
The ministers were discussing issues including the Middle East, the refugee crisis, the conflict in Ukraine and global terrorism.
