Japan says trust in Treasuries unshakable-Bloomberg

TOKYO, June 12 (Reuters) - Japan has complete trust in Treasuries and U.S. support for a strong dollar, Japanese Finance Minister Kaoru Yosano was quoted as saying in a Bloomberg interview.

“We have complete trust in the fact that the U.S. views its strong dollar policy as fundamental,” Yosano, also economics minister, said in an interview with Bloomberg that was conducted on June 10 and published on Friday.

“Our trust in Treasuries is absolutely unshakable.”

The dollar’s position as the world’s reserve currency is not under threat and Japan has no intention of asking the U.S. government to sell yen-denominated debt, Yosano was also quoted as saying.
