Japan will urge Indonesia to lower its tariffs on Japanese automobiles as agreed under a bilateral free trade pact that entered into force in 2008, trade minister Yoichi Miyazawa said Tuesday.

Miyazawa said Japan and Indonesia are expected to hold bilateral discussions on the matter possibly within this month. “It is true that (Indonesian) auto tariffs are not at the agreed levels. Naturally, we will discuss the matter in our consultations,” the minister told a regular news conference.
