U.S. Ambassador to Japan, William Hagerty, is resigning this month after two years in office, the U.S. Embassy said on Tuesday.

Hagerty, who succeeded Caroline Kennedy as envoy to one of Washington’s most important allies in late July 2017, upheld U.S. President Donald Trump’s hard-line on trade during his time in office.

“Ambassador Hagerty is honoured to have represented the President and the American people in his work to advance the U.S.-Japan alliance, the cornerstone of peace and prosperity in the Pacific,’’ the embassy said in a statement.
