“Let us be pragmatic. It won’t work without General Motors,” Leonhard Fischer told Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung.
The newspaper said Fischer was explicitly not ruling out the option of selling Opel to GM after RHJ had completed restructuring.
Separately, the news agency reported that the Opel Trust, a German body responsible for Opel since June, said at the weekend it had not made any decisions yet regarding the takeover offers.
It said GM had not yet made a recommendation nor submitted a request for the trust’s decision.
