NEW YORK/LONDON (Financial Times) -- Renault has urged Nissan's board to call an extraordinary general meeting on Monday, a move that would allow the French carmaker to make key appointments at the Japanese company after the removal of its chairman Carlos Ghosn.

In a letter dated December 14, Renault's acting chief executive Thierry Bollore wrote to his Nissan counterpart Hiroto Saikawa to express the French company's deep concerns about last week's indictment of Nissan along with Mr Ghosn on allegations of financial misconduct.
