Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke by telephone late Wednesday with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, according to a statement released by the Prime Minister's Office.

Merkel is said to have told the Israeli premier that Berlin has no intention of altering its policies despite a recent report in Der Spiegel indicating that officials in the Chancellery and the Foreign Ministry were advocating a harder line against Jerusalem over its actions beyond the Green Line.
