FUKUOKA, Japan (Reuters) - Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said on Sunday the Group of 20 finance leaders reaffirmed their commitment to use all policy tools if risks to their economies materialize.

But there was no discussion on what specific measures the G20 countries should take, as that would depend on economic conditions of each member, Kuroda told a news conference after a meeting of the group’s finance ministers and central bank governors in Fukuoka, southern Japan.
