TOKYO (Reuters) – Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Wednesday defended the central bank’s ultra-loose monetary policy, saying it had helped create more jobs.

“We accept the explanation” given by the Bank of Japan on why inflation has failed to hit its 2 percent target, Abe told parliament.

“What’s most important is what is happening to the economy, which is that more jobs were created,” he said.
