Shortly after being investigated on corruption allegations, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday said in a video he is "absolutely confident" that the allegations against him will prove baseless.

Netanyahu began by telling about his recent diplomatic meetings. "I've had two very important meetings with the foreign ministers of Germany and France," he said. "We discussed various topics, but the main topic was our security in the face of Iran and its nuclear program. ... Tonight I'll meet with senior members of Congress who are coming here, and I'll tell them my opinion on this issue as well as others."

"Oh, and I had another meeting today," he added, referring to his investigation and stating that he is "absolutely confident that nothing is going to happen" before wishing the viewers a happy Passover.

Earlier on Monday, Netanyahu, his wife, Sara and their son Yair were questioned by police about their alleged involvement in the Bezeq corruption scandal.
