Japan's Ishihara says market moves reflect uncertainty about global economy

Published : January 16, 2017

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese Economy Minister Nobuteru Ishihara said on Tuesday that a fall in the British pound and declines in stocks reflected uncertainty about Britain's departure from the European Union and about the global economy.


"These moves show there is a lot of focus on uncertainty for the global economy. This is a situation we would also like to monitor," Ishihara told reporters after a cabinet meeting.
