    Venezuela foreign minister says new US sanctions are illegal

    Caracas: Venezuela on Monday said new U.S. sanctions restricting its ability to liquidate state assets and debt in the United States were “illegal measures.” “(The sanctions) are madness, barbaric, and in absolute contradiction to international law,” Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza said in a short statement at the Miraflores presidential palace. 

    In response to Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s re-election on Sunday, U.S. President Donald Trump issued an executive order, the latest in a series of sanctions that seeks to choke off financing for the already cash-strapped government.

    BOJ deputy governor Wakatabe: May need to shift policy depending on economic changes

    Tokyo: Bank of Japan Deputy Governor Masazumi Wakatabe said on Tuesday the central bank may need to shift monetary policy if changes in the economic environment make its current policy inappropriate.

    “My feeling now is that we can achieve our inflation target with the current policy,” Wakatabe, a former academic known as a vocal advocate of aggressive easing, told parliament.  “But that’s my view now. If conditions change and our current policy becomes inappropriate, we may need to change policy,” he said.

    BOJ Kuroda: Will telegraph exit plan if prospects for hitting price goal heighten

    Tokyo: Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said on Tuesday the central bank will telegraph to markets how it plans to exit from its ultra-easy policy when prospects for hitting its price goal heighten. 

    But he said conditions are not rife yet for the BOJ to debate a specific timing for whittling down its massive stimulus programme.  “The BOJ won’t end the ultra-easy policy before inflation reaches 2 percent,” Kuroda told parliament.
