BOJ's Kuroda: not considering further monetary easing now

TOKYO, Nov 29 (Reuters) - Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said he was not considering further monetary easing at present, adding he would not hesitate to ease policy further if risks to the Bank of Japan's 2% inflation target heighten.

The central bank is not at a stage where it needs to consider the timing and method of exit from monetary stimulus either, he told the financial committee of parliament's lower house. (Reporting by Tetsushi Kajimoto; Editing by Muralikumar Anantharaman)
