TOKYO Jan 8 (Reuters) - Achieving price stability is likely to be the focus of a policy accord between the government and the Bank of Japan, Japanese Economics Minister Akira Amari said on Tuesday.

Amari made the remark in response to a question about whether the government would also make the BOJ responsible for job creation, which is similar to the U.S. Federal Reserve's mandate.
