BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Belgian politicians reached a deal on Thursday to break a deadlock over a planned EU-Canada free trade agreement that all 27 other EU governments support but the French-speaking south of Belgium had rejected.
Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel told reporters that the heads of Belgium's regions and linguistic communities had produced a common text to allay concerns about agricultural imports and a contentious dispute settlement system.
Any deal agreed in Belgium will still have to be put to the other 27 EU members for approval before CETA itself could be signed.
