[TOKYO] Tokyo's Nikkei index slipped 0.37 per cent on Friday as a stronger yen hit exporters, a day after it reached a more than seven-year high and despite upbeat sentiment following news of a Ukraine ceasefire deal.

The benchmark Nikkei at the Tokyo Stock Exchange fell 66.36 points to close at 17,913.36, while the Topix index of all first-section shares was flat, edging down 0.01 points to 1,449.38.
