Tokyo: Toyota said Monday it will stop all Japanese vehicle assembly lines for one week from February 8 to 15 due to a parts shortage following an explosion at a supplier.

The decision was made due to a parts shortage resulting from a recent industrial explosion at Toyota affiliate Aichi Steel Corp, the world's top automaker said in a statement, adding that overseas production would not be suspended.
