WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Talks between Japanese Finance Minister Taro Aso and U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin will be based on the view, shared among the international community, that global imbalances should be dealt with multilaterally, not bilaterally, a senior Japanese finance ministry official said on Thursday.

Aso and Mnuchin will meet for bilateral talks on Friday on the sidelines of the G20 finance leaders’ gathering, according to the Japanese Ministry of Finance.
