Japan's Aso: will meet U.S. VP Pence but not as part of econ dialogue

TOKYO, Nov 13 (Reuters) - Japanese Finance Minister Taro Aso said he was scheduled to meet with U.S. Vice President Mike Pence on Tuesday but that their meeting would not be part of the economic dialogue between the two countries.

Aso, speaking to reporters after a cabinet meting, said he did not expect to discuss auto tariffs with Pence and that there were many issues besides trade policy that they could discuss.
