[TOKYO] Tokyo stocks opened higher on Monday, with exporters rising on a weak yen as energy issues gained on a weekend deal to cut oil production by non-Opec states.

The benchmark Nikkei 225 index, which ended last week at a fresh high for the year, added 0.92 per cent, or 175.05 points, to 19,171.42 in the first few minutes of trade.

The broader Topix index of all first-section issues was up 0.67 per cent, or 10.29 points, to 1,535.65.
