France's Alstom has filed a breach of contract suit against General Electric rooted in a dispute focused on Alstom's agreement to buy GE's rail signalling business two years ago, the companies confirmed Thursday.

GE agreed to sell the signalling division to Alstom in 2014 for $800 million as part of the US company's purchase of Alstom's energy business for about $10.6 billion.
