[TOKYO] Tokyo stocks opened higher on Friday after US President Donald Trump said he favours a strong dollar, sending the Japanese currency lower against the greenback, a move positive for Japanese exporters.

The benchmark Nikkei 225 index rose 0.40 per cent, or 95.03 points, to 23,764.52 in early trade while the broader Topix index was up 0.26 per cent, or 4.91 points, at 1,889.47.
