Shinzo Abe’s Departure Throws Wrench Into U.S.-Japan Ties

Shinzo Abe worked relentlessly at creating close ties with American leaders, at Trump Tower and on the golfing study course with President Trump, and before then in Hiroshima and Pearl Harbor with President Obama.

The decline of Mr. Abe, who is stepping down since of bad wellness soon after driving U.S.-Japan relations for practically 8 decades, will be one particular of the most significant challenges as the allies deal with China’s military growth and negotiate a renewal of the agreement under which Tokyo shares the fees for basing U.S. troops in Japan.
