BRUSSELS -- French Economy and Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire implied on Sunday that the head of the Renault-Nissan alliance should be from the French automaker, as the group deals with the fallout from the arrest of leader Carlos Ghosn.

"We agreed with my Japanese counterpart that the rules of governance do not change," Le Maire said of his meeting on Thursday with Hiroshige Seko, Japan's minister of economy, trade and industry, according to AFP.
