Belgian govt plans no favors for Puigdemont

The Belgian government says it will keep in contact with the Spanish authorities about the stay of ousted Catalan President Carles Puigdemont on its territory.
Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel said Tuesday that Puigdemont, who arrived in Brussels the previous day, will not be granted any special favors.
Michel said in a statement that “the government will have regular diplomatic contacts with Spain regarding the current circumstances.”
The government insisted it had not made any effort to encourage Puigdemont to come to Belgium.
Puigdemont insisted during a news conference Tuesday he had no plans to ask for asylum in Belgium and would return once conditions allowed him. He said he was drawn to Brussels not as the capital of Belgium but as the seat of the main European Union institutions.
