One of the Vice Ministers

One of the vice ministers told NHK, “I was very surprised because I hadn’t heard about it at all in advance.

one of the Liberal Democratic Party’s ministers

One former Liberal Democratic Party cabinet minister told NHK, “I’m very surprised and at a loss. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe may have been fighting against chronic illness recently.
