The delegation, which also included Renault-appointed French director Martin Vial, said it wanted to name the next Nissan chairman, according to the report. Nissan was not immediately available for comment.
Nissan's former chairman Carlos Ghosn, detained and detained in Tokyo since November 19, was charged in Japan for not having filed his salary for eight years until March 2018, and Nissan temporarily transferred personal financial losses to Nissan's global financial crisis. Ghosn has denied all allegations.
The French government has asked Renault to hold a board meeting in the coming days to replace Ghosn. Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said on Sunday in a newspaper interview that Michelin ( MICP.PA ) Jean-Dominique Senard, Chief Executive, was a good choice for Renault.
"The French state will speak as a shareholder. What I can tell you is that Jean-Dominique Senard has a recognized expertise in the automotive industry, "Le Maire told the French newspaper Journal du Dimanche.
