OTTAWA (Reuters) - Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said on Wednesday he will stress at this weekend's G20 finance ministers meeting the need for the United States and Europe to fix their banking systems.

Flaherty's comments to reporters came ahead of a G20 finance ministers meeting this weekend in Britain that will lay the groundwork for a summit of G20 leaders in early April.
