Saudi king says to consider Japan's request to support Tokyo listing of Aramco

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has asked Saudi Arabia’s King Salman to support the listing of Saudi state oil giant Aramco shares on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, a Japanese senior government official said on Monday.

King Salman said that the kingdom would look into the request because he wants Japanese investors to buy Aramco shares, the official said after the two leaders met.

Bourses in Asia and elsewhere are vying to win the $100 billion listing.
