Japanese Finance Minister Shunichi Suzuki said Thursday he discussed the recent "rapid" decline of the yen against the U.S. dollar with Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, after the currency dropped to a 20-year low earlier this week. They agreed to closely communicate on currency movements, Suzuki told reporters after the meeting.
