SEOUL, Aug. 7 (Yonhap) -- Second Deputy National Security Adviser Shin In-ho resigned Sunday due to health reasons, a presidential official said Sunday.

Shin tendered his resignation three weeks ago citing deteriorating health, and President Yoon accepted it on Saturday, Choi Young-bum, senior presidential secretary for public relations, said at a press briefing.

Lim Ki-hoon, a defense secretary, will fill in for Shin until the successor is picked.
