Asia stocks edge down

On Tuesday, Asian stocks drifted away, and the greenback gave up the profits it had clocked on the American Treasury Secretary's recent comments in support of a stronger currency because surging tensions over North Korea dragged market sentiment lower.

Outside Japan MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific stocks sank 0.6%.

Japan's Nikkei N225 inched up 0.2%, shrinking earlier revenues as the Japanese yen's losses evaporated.

The Australian dollar went down 0.3%, hitting $0.7566.

South Korea's KOSPI lost 0.2% after in Seoul American Vice President Mike Pence told business leaders that President Donald Trump's administration is going to review and also reform the five-year-old free trade agreement between the two countries.
