NORMAN, Okla. (AP) The head of the Chinese automaker that's announced plans for an MG auto plant in Ardmore is being vague about whether the company will build the plant.

Nanjing Automobile Corporation MG President Yu Jianwei says in a radio interview he believes U.S. interests want to build the plant. But he also says his company won't "necessarily" be building the plant although it could cooperate on technological issues or branding.

Earlier this week a Nanjing employee in China indicated plans for the Oklahoma plant were being abandoned. But state and local economic development officials say plans for the plant are moving forward.
