PARIS (Reuters) – France will discuss with Germany ways to change European rules on competition, in light of an imminent EU veto on a planned deal between Siemens and Alstom (PA:), said French finance minister Bruno Le Maire.
“The current EU rules are obsolete,” Le Maire told France 2 television.
“There could have been another interpretation of the rules and I challenge the technical analysis made by the European Commission,” the French minister added.
