Japan told its G20 counterparts that recent market volatility did not reflect global economic fundamentals at the group`s finance leaders` meeting on Monday, the country`s vice finance minister Minoru Kihara said.
He also said many Group of 20 finance leaders voiced concern over "inward-looking" policies such as protectionism.
"It`s unthinkable for such voices to not be reflected in tomorrow`s G20 communique," Minoru told reporters after attending the first day of the two-day meeting.
Kihara attended the G20 meeting on behalf of Finance Minister Taro Aso, who stayed in Japan to address parliament over a suspected cronyism scandal.
