BOJ's Kuroda: Not thinking of buying foreign bonds to ease policy
TOKYO, March 28
TOKYO, March 28 (Reuters) - Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said on Thursday he has no intention to buy foreign-currency bonds to ease policy, because there are many different monetary easing options and because doing so could be seen as currency intervention.
"If we were in a situation where buying foreign bonds was the only way to ease policy, then I couldn't deny this. However, right now there are a lot of different options for easing policy, and I am not thinking about buying foreign bonds now," Kuroda said in parliament.
