US-Japan trade talks to include currency manipulation rules

Tokyo's strong opposition could make it a touchy subject at G-20 meeting in Fukuoka

CHICAGO -- U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin plans to talk with Japan's Finance Minister Taro Aso about trade, including a requirement to refrain from manipulating currencies to gain an advantage in cross-border trade -- a measure to which Japan is strongly opposed.
