A Japanese Bank has suggested that Russian and Japanese financial institutions use yen instead of US dollars.

VLADIVOSTOK, September 4 (Sputnik) – Tokyo has suggested to Moscow that Russia use the Japanese national currency, the yen, in its transactions instead of the US dollar in order to minimize risks, Tadashi Maeda, the Senior Managing Director of the Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC), said Friday.

"We have suggested that our Russian partners explore the possibility of using the Japanese yen as an extra currency," Maeda said during the Eastern Economic Forum (EEF) currently being held in the Russian city of Vladivostok.
