BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany's Finance Ministry said on Friday it expected a fair result to a U.S. investigation into Deutsche Bank's selling of mortgage-backed securities.

"The government is aware that the U.S. authorities have agreed similar settlement payments with other credit institutions," Finance Ministry spokeswoman Friederike von Tiesenhausen told a regular government news conference.

"The government expects that at the end of this process a fair result will be achieved on the basis of equal treatment," she added.

Germany's flagship lender said on Friday that the U.S. Department of Justice is asking it to pay $14 billion to settle an investigation into its selling of mortgage-backed securities.
