PARIS, June 20 Mitsubishi Heavy Industries
said on Friday it acknowledged and regretted the French
government's decision to reject its joint offer with Siemens
for a tie-up with engineering group Alstom.
"Mitsubishi will remain committed to developing its
relationship with France and French industrial partners in the
future," the Japanese firm said in an emailed statement.
The company said it was proud of the cooperation with
nuclear group Areva and looked forward to working
with other leading French companies.
France chose General Electric to form an alliance
with Alstom on Friday.
