TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese Finance Minister Taro Aso said on Thursday the U.S. Federal Reserve’s decision to raise interest rates was an appropriate one that reflects an improving U.S. economy.

Aso spoke to reporters after the Fed ended its zero-interest rate policy and raised rates for the first time in almost a decade.
