Paris - French Economy Minister Bruno Le Maire on Sunday dismissed talk of a merger between Renault and Nissan, despite Japanese media reports that France was pushing for it.
Le Maire's remarks were made during his visit to Cairo.
Earlier on Sunday, Japanese media said France wants a merger between Renault and Nissan following the arrest of former Nissan chairman Carlos Ghosn on charges of financial misconduct.
"The subject is not on the table today. What is on the table today is the governance of Renault," he told journalists during a visit to Cairo.
"The most important thing for us is to have solid, stable, sustainable governance for Renault," said Le Maire.
