Euro hits 1-year high in the wake of Draghi's upbeat comments

SINGAPORE, June 28 (Reuters) - The euro hit a one-year high on Wednesday, staying firm after comments by European Central Bank President Mario Draghi the previous day were seen as opening the door to tweaks in the central bank’s aggressive monetary stimulus.
