[TOKYO] Tokyo stocks gained 1.18 per cent to close at a seven-year high Wednesday on hopes for an end to Greece's debt stand-off, while a weaker yen supported exporters.

The Nikkei 225 index at the Tokyo Stock Exchange rose 212.08 points to 18,199.17, its best closing since July 2007, while the Topix index of all first-section issues climbed 1.41 per cent, or 20.60 points, to 1,482.67.
