TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese Economy Minister Yasutoshi Nishimura said on Friday it was up to the Bank of Japan to decide what the appropriate monetary policy step should be.

He also told a news conference that monetary policy should be decided based on each country’s economic condition, when asked how the European Central Bank’s monetary easing decision could affect the BOJ’s move.
