TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan's industry minister said on Friday there was no truth to a media report that the government was aiming for a 2030 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction of 45% from fiscal year 2013 levels, against the current 26% target.

The target has to be realistic, Industry Minister Hiroshi Kajiyama told a news conference.
