PARIS (Reuters) - German carmaker Daimler's DAIGn.DE plan to cooperate with China's Geely to build a next-generation combustion engine does not mean the end of cooperation between Daimler and Renault RENA.PA, a source at the French company told Reuters on Tuesday.

The source said that current engine projects between Renault, Daimler and Nissan will continue and new opportunities are being studied.
