TOKYO -- Warren Buffett told Nikkei in an interview on Tuesday that he intends to add to his investments in Japanese stocks, saying he is "very proud" of his holdings in the nation's leading trading groups.

Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway disclosed in August 2020 that it acquired slightly more than 5% in each of Japan's top five trading houses -- Itochu, Mitsubishi Corp., Mitsui & Co., Sumitomo Corp. and Marubeni. Berkshire increased its stakes in November.
