BERLIN — The German government said Monday that reports are false that Germany proposed a resolution for the EU to recognize an independent Palestinian state within a year if no peace agreement is reached by then.

German Foreign Ministry Spokesman Stefan Bredohl said Monday the report in Ma'ariv "is entirely unfounded."

German Chancellor Angela Merkel's spokesman Steffen Seibert also rejected the newspaper's report that German State Secretary Eckhart von Klaeden, who is currently visiting Israel, delivered a message from the chancellor to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on the alleged initiative.

He said Merkel had written no such letter. Seibert said: "That report is simply false."
