TOKYO, April 24 (Reuters) - Japanese trading house Marubeni Corp is examining conditions imposed by China on its $5.6 billion purchase of U.S. grain merchant Gavilon and will not comment further, a company official said on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, Chinese regulators gave a qualified green light to Marubeni's purchase of Gavilon, imposing strict conditions that underscore Beijing's anxiety over food security.
