Japan trade mininister says not considering Toshiba rescue plan

TOKYO (Reuters) -- Japan's minister for economy, trade and industry, Hiroshige Seko, said on Friday a rescue plan for embattled conglomerate Toshiba Corp was not under consideration at his ministry.

Seko told reporters after a cabinet meeting that he would closely monitor the steps taken by Toshiba's management.

Toshiba is under pressure to come up with cash as it faces a bigger-than-expected writedown for its U.S. nuclear business that local media have said could come in at $6 billion.
