Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel on Wednesday denied his government was in "crisis" over the arrival of deposed Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont, an issue which risks reigniting Belgian communal tensions.

"There is a political crisis in Spain and not in Belgium," Michel told the Belgian parliament, after Flemish separatist members of his coalition government spoke out in support of Puigdemont.
