WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Japanese Finance Minister Taro Aso said on Friday he discussed currencies with U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, but only as part of broader discussions on their economies.

In a news conference after the Group of 20 finance leaders meeting, Aso also said he conveyed Japan’s concern over protectionism in the bilateral meeting with Mnuchin.
