TOKYO (dpa-AFX) - Japan's Finance Minister Yoshihiko Noda on Friday said his country will continue to buy bonds issued by the European Financial Stability Facility (EFSF) to help stabilize EU economies.
'If it leads to stability in the EU's economy and finance, we will continue to contribute at the same pace,' reports quoted him as saying.
Noda's remarks comes after the Eurozone leaders agreed upon a second rescue deal for Greece, worth EUR 109 billion, on Thursday.
The minister reiterated that the government will keep a close watch on the currency market as yen continued a 'one-sided' movement.
