Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe offered his "sincere and everlasting condolences" Tuesday at Pearl Harbor for those who died in the Japanese attack there in 1941, while praising the power of the reconciliation between Japan and the United States in the 75 years since then, according to Kyodo news agency.

In a speech following talks with U.S. President Barack Obama at the harbor, Abe gave his condolences in his capacity as prime minister "to the souls of those who lost their lives here, as well as to the spirits of all the brave men and women whose lives were taken by a war that commenced in this very place."

After both leaders made their speeches at Kilo Pier, located in the base that came under Japanese attack in 1941, Abe spoke with and embraced a number of Pearl Harbor survivors present.
