TOKYO -- The leaders of Nissan Motor, Renault and Mitsubishi Motors will meet on Thursday in what would be the first gathering of the auto alliance's top brass since the arrest of chief Carlos Ghosn.

The meeting is to be held at the headquarters of Amsterdam-based joint venture Renault-Nissan BV -- which handles such key issues as procurement and new model development for the alliance. Renault Chief Operating Officer Thierry Bollore will attend as acting CEO in Ghosn's absence, while Nissan CEO Hiroto Saikawa and Mitsubishi Chairman Osamu Masuko will participate via teleconference.
