Japanís Abe Says Ghosnís Arrest Will Not Affect Ties with France

TOKYO Ė The arrest of the former chairman of Nissan, Carlos Ghosn, will not have any impact on bilateral relations with France, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said on Monday.

At a press conference, Shinzo Abe said he was in favor of maintaining Nissan and Mitsubishiís alliance with Renault, after the Public Prosecutorís Office announced the formal indictment against Ghosn, who has been imprisoned in Tokyo since Nov. 19.

Abe did not comment on the court cases involving Ghosn but said that Nissan, Renault and Mitsubishi must maintain their stability.

Ghosn has been accused by Japan of not declaring half of the wages he received from Nissan since 2011.

He was removed as chairman of Nissan and Mitsubishi days after his arrest, but remains Renaultís top chief, although he has been suspended from duty.

These three companies form an alliance set up almost two decades ago by Ghosn and other executives. He had served as CEO and chairman of that tripartite group.

Abe said that he had discussed the issue at the recent G20 summit in Buenos Aires with French President Emmanuel Macron.

He said that both leaders agreed on the need to maintain the stability of the alliance among the three firms.

Abe denied Ghosnís arrest would have a detrimental impact on the strong bilateral relations between the countries.
