In Japan, Shinzo Abe said Friday he is resigning as prime minister due to poor health. Over nearly eight years in office, Abe remained pro-nuclear, despite the 2011 Fukushima nuclear meltdown following an earthquake and tsunami. Throughout his career, Abe tried unsuccessfully to do away with Article 9 of Japan’s Constitution, which renounces war and bars Japan from using — or threatening to use — military force.
