Japan to reduce Iran oil imports

Japan will take “concrete steps” to reduce its oil dependency on Iran, its finance minister has announced. The comments from Jun Azumi came after he met US Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner in Tokyo, the BBC said. Geithner is seeking backing from China and Japan for stricter sanctions on Iran’s oil industry in a bid to curb Tehran’s nuclear ambitions. On Wednesday he raised the issue with Chinese leaders in Beijing, but did not get the same public support.
