COLOGNE, Germany (Reuters) - Deutsche Telekom is not in any talks about a potential merger, the company told its shareholders on Thursday.

Asked whether Deutsche Telekom was flirting with France's Orange Chief Executive Tim Hoettges said: "We are not talking to anyone about merging, also not to Orange. We are not even flirting."

Hoettges added that regulators should treat the European telecoms market as one and not as a collection of national markets to create an environment beneficial to cross-boarder mergers.
