A U.S. proposal that the future international tax reform could be optional for companies is a "non-starter" and is no longer on the table, French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said on Friday.

Le Maire was speaking after meeting OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurria to discuss global tax reform.

He also said it was up to U.S. authorities to make a move in coming days on a French digital tax targeting big tech companies.
