[TOKYO] Japan's top government spokesman said on Thursday the nation's financial system is always healthy and stable.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga declined to comment on share prices at a regular news conference but he said the government would monitor market movements closely.

He made the comments after Japanese stock prices extended losses and the yen hovered near a seven-week high against the dollar as China's market turmoil spread.
