Prime Minister of Japan Plans Historic Visit to Pearl Harbor

The prime minister of Japan says he will visit Pearl Harbor with President Barack Obama.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced Monday morning he will make the trip with President Obama at the end of this month.

He also says he plans to hold a final summit meeting there with President Obama before he leaves office.
