Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday charged that weekend reports that he allegedly conspired with a top Israeli newspaper publisher were part of a "campaign of leaks designed to mislead the public."

In a meeting of his Likud faction, the premier denied any wrongdoing, adding that he could not divulge into further details of the matter.

"What I can tell you is that there is a campaign of tendentious leaks designed to mislead the public and distort the real picture as if there were crimes, which don't exists, and this will soon become clear," he said of the ongoing investigation into the allegations.

Netanyahu warned the opposition against rushing to celebrate over the investigation, stressing that his government "will be here and will continue to lead the country for years to come."
