TOKYO (Reuters) - Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said on Wednesday that it was his responsibility to achieve the central bank’s 2 percent inflation target by persistently continuing its stimulus policy.

Speaking to a lower house budget committee, Kuroda also said he would closely examine the central bank’s stimulus policy so that it would not cause side effects.
