UPDATE 1-Nissan boss Saikawa fails to meet Renault's Bollore -sourceReuters | Updated: 19-12-2018 17:38 IST | Created: 19-12-2018 17:38 IST
Tensions have risen between Nissan and Renault since Ghosn's arrest in Japan over allegations that he understated his salary at Nissan where he was promptly sacked as chairman while Renault has kept him on as chairman and CEO.
A source told Reuters Saikawa, Renault Deputy CEO Thierry Bollore and Osamu Masuko, CEO of partner automaker Mitsubishi Motors Corp, did attend a regular operational meeting in Amsterdam on Tuesday, but Saikawa and Bollore did not meet privately.
A Nissan spokesman declined to comment.
Earlier this week, Nissan shunned demands from Renault to hold a shareholder meeting which would enable the French automaker to weigh in on Nissan's selection of Ghosn's replacement and other executive positions.
Ghosn and Kelly remain in custody and have had limited opportunity to respond to the allegations or defend themselves publicly.
The scandal has shaken the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance, with Saikawa calling for changes to weaken Renault's control over Nissan. (Reporting by Maki Shiraki; editing by Robert Birsel and Jason Neely)
