HIROSHIMA, Japan - John Kerry on Monday was set to be the first US secretary of state to visit Hiroshima's atomic bomb museum and pay respects at a memorial for victims of the 1945 US nuclear attack, raising expectations President Barack Obama may make an historic visit next month.

A senior US official said on Sunday that Kerry would not offer an apology for the United States' use of the atomic bomb when he joins his counterparts from Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan on the visit, which takes place on the sidelines of a G7 foreign ministers' meeting in the western Japanese city that was once obliterated by US atomic bombing.

It will also be the first visit by foreign ministers from Britain and France, two other nuclear powers among G7 nations.
