Japan's finance minister Jojima says it is not appropriate for government to set inflation target

Says:

- BoJ underwriting bonds could cause sharp inflation.
- Is too early to state size of extra budget.
- Expects BoJ to pursue bold credit easing in line with joint statement with government.

Update details:
