TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan expects a limited impact from a U.S. decision to force buyers of Iranian crude oil to stop purchases from next month, trade and industry minister Hiroshige Seko said on Tuesday.
Seko also told reporters at a regular press conference that the Japanese government did not see any need to tap national oil reserves following the U.S. decision by the U.S.
