TOKYO (Reuters) – Finance Minister Shunichi Suzuki said on Friday he saw no risk of Japanese government bonds (JGBs) suffering a loss of principal as long as it wins market confidence in its debt management.

Suzuki also told reporters after a cabinet meeting that the ministry would strive to achieve the fiscal 2025 budget balancing target by promoting fiscal reform.
