What kind of Prime Minister Abe is?

He has already dragged down Japan for 5 years. How long does it take for Japan to make a decision not an option?

Crawling to the cross!! Japan finally had to realize that China is now the main source of investement in regional Asia. Hard blow for Abe, who seeks to conquer China`s stance on every aspects regarding the influence in Asia! A nice acknowledgement for China from Japan:)
