Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe on the wires
- Says that he feels responsible over the MOF land sale document alterations
- Says that it’s a situation that has shaken public faith
- Wants finance minister Aso to take responsibility for the investigation
- Says that it is Aso’s responsibility to clarify full facts of document alterations
Pretty much the typical damage limitation kind of stuff. Nothing to suggest that we are going to see a major political turmoil in Japan.
Not much reaction in yen pairs from his speech. USD/JPY sitting at 106.57, EUR/JPY at 131.44, GBP/JPY at 147.84.
