US Secretary of State John Kerry Monday vehemently denied he had ever called Israel “an apartheid state” amid a row over comments reportedly made during a private meeting, AFP reports.

“I do not believe, not have I ever stated, publicly or privately that Israel is an apartheid state or that it intends to become one,” the top US diplomat said in strong statement after calls for him to resign or at least apologize for the alleged comments on Friday to a meeting of international experts.
