TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese Finance Minister Taro Aso said on Thursday the government had no immediate plan to adopt restrictions on short-selling of Japanese government bonds (JGBs).

"JGBs are held predominantly by domestic investors, so I don't there is a strong chance that markets will experience big fluctuations," Aso told parliament. "I don't see a strong need to introduce regulations," he added.

The Bank of Japan has gobbled up roughly 40% of the JGB market, leading some market players to worry that a lack of liquidity could make bond moves susceptible to big swings.
