Japan's finance minister Jun Azumi delivers a speech at a special forum preceding the 2012 annual meetings of the IMF and World Bank Group in Tokyo. Japan's government could run out of money by the end of October, halting all state spending including salaries, pensions and unemployment benefits, because of a standoff in parliament that has blocked a bill to finance the deficit.
