The Swiss National Bank currently sees no need to focus on foreign currency sales to support the value of the Swiss franc, Chairman Thomas Jordan said on Thursday.

In the past the high value of the franc was helpful against imported inflation, but with price rises ebbing this was less the case, Jordan told reporters after the central bank's latest monetary policy decision.

Still, this did not mean the SNB would not intervene in foreign currency markets in future, he said. (Reporting by John Revill Editing by Tomasz Janowski)
