Japan's foreign minister said on Wednesday he personally regretted the departure of "frank, trustworthy" U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson... Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono told reporters in Tokyo.

Good thing he actually made a public statement and didn't just tweet this. That would have been sooo disrespectful...
