TOKYO (Reuters) - Finance Minister Taro Aso said on Tuesday that he would not comment on Japan's response in the currency market if the yen were to rise further in the wake of bleak U.S. payroll data.

Speaking to reporters after a cabinet meeting, Aso declined to comment on U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew's remark over the weekend that described recent currency market moves as "orderly" in a sign of caution against currency intervention.
