GM says has routine contact with other automakers

DETROIT, Oct 29 (Reuters) - General Motors Corp GM.N on Wednesday declined to comment on reports that it was considering seeking help from Japanese rival Toyota Motor Corp 7203.T, but said executives "routinely discuss issues of mutual interest" with other automakers.

“As a policy, we do not confirm or comment publicly on those private discussions, which in many cases do not lead anywhere,” GM said in a statement

A Kyodo news report, citing sources familiar with the plan, said Toyota was expected to consider quick fixes for the cash-strapped GM, including buying up its assets and helping it secure sufficient business funds. (Reporting by Poornima Gupta, editing by Maureen Bavdek)
