Japan Aso - think G20 countries understand free trade importance

Reuters  |  TOKYO 

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese Minister Taro said on Tuesday he felt that Group of 20 countries shared a common understanding that is important.

also said that the agenda for the U.S.-economic dialogue starting next month had not been decided, but he wanted to have constructive talks that are mutually beneficial to both sides in the areas of trade and economics.

Aso's comments on free trade, however, are unlikely to ease concerns about the threat of protectionism.

Financial leaders of G20 economies dropped a pledge to keep global trade free and open at a summit over the weekend, acquiescing to an increasingly protectionist United States after a two-day meeting failed to yield a compromise.
