It is noted that a special meeting of the Japanese Cabinet began at 11:30 local time (05:30 Moscow time).

According to the agency, information about the new composition of the Japanese government under the leadership of Prime Minister Fumio Kishida will soon appear.

Initially, according to the agency, the reshuffle in the government was supposed to take place in early September, but Kishida decided to accelerate this process, intending to promote the economic concept of "new capitalism".

In July, parliamentary elections were held in Japan.
