Fiat Chrysler's merger offer for Renault, which was withdrawn in June, was "in the past" and the two parties have not resumed discussions, the French carmaker's CEO Thierry Bollore said on Tuesday.

"We are not talking to each other, this is the past, the offer was on the table, it's no longer on the table," Bollore said at the Frankfurt car show, adding it was a matter of regret.

"I am sure they regret as well this common module family," he added, referring to a car manufacturing platform.

Bollore said that Renault's main priority "was to help Nissan become more healthy".
