Mitsubishi Motors Corp.'s president Takashi Sonobe has downplayed suggestions that a second-in-command arriving next year from DaimlerChrysler AG will encourage a takeover by the foreign automaker, Associated Press reports. "I am confident [that], as long as we provide DaimlerChrysler with trustworthy technology and products, there is no possibility the current framework of alliance will change,'' Sonobe was quoted as saying.
