LONDON (Reuters) – British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Friday praised the record of Japanese premier Shinzo Abe, who announced his resignation earlier because of poor health.

“@AbeShinzo has achieved great things as PM of Japan – for his country and the world,” Johnson said on Twitter.

“Under his stewardship the UK-Japan relationship has gone from strength to strength in trade, defence and our cultural links. Thank you for all your years of service and I wish you good health.”
