The Bank of Japan decided Thursday to maintain its current large-scale monetary easing policy unchanged.

At the end of a two-day policy meeting, the central bank decided to keep its short-term interest rate at minus 0.1% and long-term interest rate at around 0%.

Gov. Haruhiko Kuroda will explain the details of the decision Thursday afternoon.
