PARIS, Sept 22 (Reuters) - French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said on Wednesday he welcomed the fact that French power group EDF and U.S. giant General Electric were in talks over a possible nuclear activities deal.

"We welcome this project. It shows our support to nuclear power and our will to reinforce our national (energetic) independence", Le Maire during a press conference held after the weekly cabinet meeting.

EDF and GE said earlier they were in exploratory discussions over a potential transaction related to the nuclear activities of GE Steam Power without mentioning the valuation of a potential deal. (Reporting by Benoit Van Overstraeten; Editing by Dominique Vidalon, Sudip Kar-Gupta)
