PARIS, June 18 (Reuters) - Renault's RENA.PA alliance with Japanese partner Nissan 7201.T remains French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire's priority ahead of any further consolidation with the likes of Fiat-Chrysler FCHA.MI, he said on Tuesday.
"It is not in our interest at all to weaken this alliance," Le Maire told Europe 1 radio. The French government is Renault's biggest shareholder with a 15% stake.
Asked to comment on media reports that Fiat's top executive had been in Paris over the weekend, Le Maire replied: "It poses me no problems at all if the head of Fiat were to spend his time in Paris."
