Japan govt: need to watch stock market moves calmly
TOKYO, June 13
TOKYO, June 13 (Reuters) - Japan's top government spokesman said on Thursday that it was important to watch stock market movements calmly amid a plunge in Tokyo share prices.
The Nikkei share average dived 6 percent on Thursday, extending early falls after the dollar fell to a 10-week low against the yen on worries the Federal Reserve may trim its stimulus programme.
"(We) should not fret about (day-to-day) ups and downs of share prices," Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told a regular news conference.
