TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese Economy Minister Toshimitsu Motegi said on Tuesday the country’s economic fundamentals remain solid, but he wants to monitor the impact a trade war between the United States and China could have on the global economy.

Motegi spoke after a meeting of the Council on Economic and Fiscal Policy on Tuesday.

At the meeting, Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda told advisers that recently global stocks have shown some nervous moves, but foreign exchange markets remain stable, according to a government official.

Kuroda also told the panel he will continue to monitor financial market moves, the official said.
