Abe to reshuffle cabinet next week

Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe intends to reshuffle his cabinet next week.

Abe revealed this at a liaison meeting of the government and the ruling coalition parties on Monday.

He said he will respond to the strong public support shown in July's Upper House election and carry out every policy he has promised.

Abe also said he will make a fresh start to take on various challenges, while placing importance on political continuity and stability.

Abe said the coalition parties have a lot of talented people in different age groups, and he will give careful consideration to creating a strong cabinet lineup.
