Bank of Japan (BOJ) Governor Haruhiko Kuroda, speaks during an interview with Reuters in Washington

TOKYO (Reuters) – Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said on Tuesday it was too early to debate an exit from the central bank’s purchases of exchange-traded funds (ETF).

“When we are to unload our ETF holdings, we will set guidelines on how to do this at a policy-setting meeting,” Kuroda told parliament. “But we’re not at a stage now to debate an exit.”
