Brazil's Foreign Minister Jose Serra resigned Wednesday citing health concerns, in a new blow to Michel Temer's administration.
Serra, 74, said health problems made him unable to keep up with the rhythm of leading the foreign ministry of Latin America's biggest nation.
He did not disclose what medical problems he is addressing. A government source said it was related to his spine on which he has had surgery in the past.
Temer has low popularity ratings amid a vast corruption scandal. He took over as president in May to replace Dilma Rousseff, who was later impeached.
Temer already had lost seven leading members of his government -- six ministers and a senior adviser.
