Japan govt spokesman: Can see risk-off selling in forex market

TOKYO, July 6 (Reuters) - A Japanese government spokesman said on Wednesday that risk-off selling can be seen in the foreign exchange market, as the dollar slid below 101 yen .

Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary Hiroshige Seko also told a news conference that the government would refrain from commenting specifically on forex and long-term interest rates.

Recent yen surges spurred by Britain’s decision to leave the European Union add to headaches for Japanese policymakers, who are worried about the effect a strong yen could have on exports. (Reporting by Minami Funakoshi; Editing by Chang-Ran Kim)
