PARIS (Reuters) - Veolia VIE.PA will not ask for a seat on Suez SEVI.PA board if the French company buys Engie's ENGIE.PA 29.9% stake in the water and waste group, CEO Antoine Frerot said on Friday.

Frerot also told reporters that Veolia would only use its voting rights in a Suez shareholder meeting to defend its interests.
