TOKYO: Tokyo stocks closed modestly higher on Monday, recovering earlier losses after receiving support from rallies in Hong Kong and Chinese markets.

The benchmark Nikkei 225 index gained 0.13 percent, or 27.35 points, to 21,285.99, while the broader Topix index ended up 0.12 percent, or 1.84 points, at 1,547.74, reports AFP.

The Nikkei and Topix indexes both opened lower with investors taking to the sidelines ahead of the G20 summit with lingering worries over the US- China trade row and concerns over an escalation in US-Iran tensions.
