PARIS, June 19 European aerospace group EADS
said on Wednesday the window for a merger with BAE
Systems was "closed".
"Considerations about a deal with BAE are water under the
bridge; we have said this time and again, the window is closed,"
EADS chief spokesman Rainer Ohler said.
The two companies abandoned plans to forge the world's
largest defence company in October amid German opposition.
The Financial Times reported in the headline of an article
on Wednesday that EADS had left the door open to a new merger
attempt with Europe's largest defence group.
