TOKYO - Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will visit Thailand, Vietnam and Indonesia next week, the government said on Thursday, after abandoning a plan to make Washington the first destination of his term. 

Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said Mr Abe will visit the three countries from Jan 16 to 19, his first foreign tour since taking office late last month.

"It is important that we strengthen relations of cooperation with Asean countries to secure the peace and prosperity of this region, as the strategic environment changes," Mr Suga said.
