Nuclear-armed North Korea has ridiculed U.S. President Barack Obama's visit to Hiroshima as the “childish” diplomatic ploy of a “nuclear war fanatic”.

In a commentary released late Thursday, the North’s official KCNA news agency said Mr. Obama's visit was an act of stunning hypocrisy. “It is a childish political calculation,” the agency said. “Even if Obama visits the damaged city, he cannot hide his identity as a nuclear war fanatic and nuclear weapons proliferator,” it added.

The KCNA commentary also questioned Tokyo’s motives in organising the visit.
