BERLIN (Reuters) - The German finance ministry on Friday declined to comment on a report that Deutsche Bank was considering a merger with Commerzbank.

“The German government and the finance ministry don’t comment on speculation about the business decisions of individual financial institutions,” a finance ministry spokeswoman said during a regular government news conference.
