Abe to reshuffle Cabinet after visiting US

Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe says he plans to reshuffle his Cabinet and ruling party executives after his upcoming visit to New York.

Abe disclosed the plan after being reelected for a third term as president of the Liberal Democratic Party on Thursday.

He told an extraordinary meeting of LDP executives that he will attend the UN General Assembly meeting in New York next week, and hold a summit with US President Donald Trump.

Abe said he will appoint new party executives and select the members of his new Cabinet soon after he returns to Japan.
