WASHINGTON, Jan. 21 (AP) - U.S. President Barack Obama showed willingness Thursday to visit the atomic-bombed city Hiroshima during his meeting with visiting Hiroshima Mayor Tadatoshi Akiba.

Akiba, who met Obama at the White House with around 230 members of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, requested Obama to visit Hiroshima. The president responded, "I would like to come," although he did not elaborate, Akiba told reporters in Washington after the meeting.

The Hiroshima mayor also suggested that he expects Obama to visit his city in November when Japan hosts the summit of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum in Yokohama.
