Shinzo Abe announces his resignation due to health reasons

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced Friday his resignation due to health reasons.

Sources said that Abe’s move came as a desire to avoid causing problems to the government due to the deterioration of his chronic health condition.

A source familiar with the matter, quoted by Reuters, confirmed that Abe had decided to resign.

Speculation about Abe’s health and the future of his state has increased after he made two hospital visits recently. Abe has suffered from chronic ulcerative colitis for years.
