Obama Visits Vietnam and Japan

Obama Visits Vietnam and Japan

Before President Barack Obama steps out of the office at the end of 2016, the government formed an Asian tour, dubbed his farewell visit.

Earlier this week, the President started the tour and two of the first countries he set foot in were Vietnam and Japan. The U.S. leader openly expressed his desire to have the country's connection with these Asian countries rejuvenated.  Vietnam and Japan happen to be two of the biggest opponents of America during the war.

The President has an appointment with the Vietnamese government leaders, particularly with Nguyen Phu Trong, the General Secretary of the Communist Party. President Obama is hoping that speaking with Vietnam's de facto head will enhance America's economic relationship with the said nation. Meanwhile, Obama is set to attend the G-7 industrial countries' summit to meet with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. The Prime Minister of Japan is currently the chairman of the international organization that is comprised of the world's seven most industrialized economies.

Prior to President Obama's trip to Vietnam, he stated in a press conference that he has considered lifting the ban on selling military paraphernalia to Vietnam. Although there are issues concerning human rights which many think are enough reasons why the country should not sell military equipment to Vietnam, the President conveyed that U.S. is better off imposing democracy on them.

Meanwhile on his trip to Hiroshima, Obama said that he will not apologize to the city.  Hiroshima lost over 100,000 people when an atomic bombed was dropped by the U.S. in 1945 during the war. However, he stated that leaders are bound to make decisions in the midst of war and everybody has to recognize that.
