Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz has confirmed that he has become the subject of an anti-corruption investigation in connection with the statements he made to the parliamentary commission, AP reported.

Kurz told lawmakers that the public prosecutor's office for economic affairs and corruption is focusing his statements made during a parliamentary inquiry into the leader of his coalition partner party, which triggered the collapse of his previous government in 2019.

Kurz suggested that the investigation is likely to lead to a criminal investigation, and he will agree to question if the case goes to a judge, according to the Austrian news agency APA. 

The Chancellor also noted he was not thinking about resignation.
