1 Min Read

MOSCOW, Feb 16 (Reuters) - Britain's finance minister, George Osborne, said on Saturday that the Group of 20 would state its opposition to competitive currency devaluations.

"The G7 made a very clear statement this week. I think you'll see the G20 echo what was said, and say that currencies should not be used as a tool of competitive devaluation," the chancellor of the exchequer told a briefing in Moscow.

"Countries shouldn't make the mistake of the past of using currencies as a tool of economic warfare."
