Reuters  |  BADEN BADEN, Germany 

BADEN BADEN, (Reuters) - Japanese Minister Taro Aso said on Friday he agreed with his U.S. counterpart Steven Mnuchin on the need to abide by the G7 and agreements on currency policy.

"We agreed that it was important to maintain the G7 and agreements on currency policy," Aso said after meeting with Mnuchin on the sidelines of a Group of 20 leaders' gathering.

Aso said he also told Mnuchin it was important to resist protectionism as free trade has brought enormous economic benefits to many countries.

"I didn't get any push back (from Mnuchin)," Aso said.
