TOKYO, April 15 (Reuters) - Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said on Tuesday that Prime Minister Shinzo Abe did not bring up additional monetary easing during a meeting over lunch.
Kuroda, speaking to reporters after the meeting, said Japan was still in the process of meeting the central bank's 2 percent inflation target, but prices were on track to achieve the goal.
