TOKYO, Aug 15 (Reuters) - Tokyo stocks ended steady on
Friday and booked their biggest weekly gain in four months on
easing tensions in Ukraine and growing hopes that Japanese
public pension funds will buy domestic shares.
     The Nikkei ended flat at 15,318.34 in choppy trade
and on subdued volume due to the summer lull. For the week, the
index gained 3.7 percent, the biggest weekly gain since
mid-April.

JPX-Nikkei Index 400 was also flat at 11,565.00.
