Japan PM says forex policy should not be discussed by leaders


Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said on Thursday that currency policy was not an issue that should be discussed between leaders of countries as doing so would make it a political issue.

Abe made the remark in parliament when asked by a lawmaker if he would discuss currencies in a meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump next week.

"I'll explain (our policy) if asked," Abe said.
