BRUSSELS (AP) -- Belgium is calling for some say in the future of General Motors Corp.'s European plants as Germany decides on possible new ownership for the Opel and Vauxhall car brands.
The heads of the Belgian federal and Flemish regional governments have called on German Chancellor Angela Merkel and the European Commission to discuss the company's fate and potential bidders with governments of other EU nations where GM makes cars.
Belgium is worried about the future of Opel's Antwerp plant and its 2,700 workers following reports that Fiat SpA wants to close the factory if it takes over Opel. Fiat has denied this.
The European Commission says it wants to host a meeting of EU governments to coordinate rescue efforts.
