Nissan Motor chief executive Hiroto Saikawa is aiming to hold his first face to face discussion with new Renault chairman Jean-Dominique Senard on the sidelines of an alliance meeting in the Netherlands on Thursday, Reuters reported, citing NHK.

"I want to use the opportunity as much as possible to talk with him," Saikawa told reporters on Wednesday in footage aired on the Japanese public broadcaster.

A Nissan spokesman was not immediately available to comment to Reuters.

The regular alliance meeting for Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi Motors will be the first attended by Senard since he replaced Carlos Ghosn as chairman of the French automaker last week.

Reuters noted Ghosn was indicted in Japan for financial misconduct and removed from his roles at the three automakers, threatening the future of the partnership he transformed into a global industrial giant over two decades.

Ghosn has said in his first media interview Nissan executives opposed to his plans for closer ties with Renault resorted to "plot and treason" to disrupt them and were behind the financial misconduct allegations against him..
