TOKYO Nov 29 Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko
Kuroda said on Friday the central bank has "absolutely no plan"
to monetise public debt via monetary policy, stressing that its
aggressive stimulus is aimed solely at achieving its 2 percent
"I strongly hope the government steadily proceeds with steps
to restore Japan's fiscal health," Kuroda told parliament,
adding that bond markets may experience volatility if confidence
in the country's finances was eroded.
Kuroda also said he expects Japan's consumer inflation to
approach 2 percent in coming years as the economy continues to
expand above its potential growth rate.
