Tokyo: Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan said on Friday that the country's intervention in currency markets this week has had a "certain effect”.

Kan also said he plans to hold talks with US President Barack Obama during his trip to the US next week.

Kan kept allies in key posts in a cabinet reshuffle earlier on Friday, signaling he plans to press ahead with efforts to curb a huge public debt as he struggles with a strong yen and weak economy.
