According to this article:
Belgium’s prime minister, Charles Michel, was among the few national leaders to denounce the violence, which the Catalan government said had left 465 people injured as police forcibly removed voters from polling stations and on one occasion fired rubber bullets.
According to Politico:
Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel, who was reportedly reprimanded by the Spanish government for not sticking to the EU’s line on the crisis, wrote: “A political crisis can only be solved through dialogue. We call for a peaceful solution with respect for national and international order.
According to Reuters, Belgium can theoretically grant political asylum to Carles Puigdemont:
Granting Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont political asylum in Belgium would be “not unrealistic” if he asks for it, the Belgian migration minister said, underlining his country’s position as a contrarian voice in the Spanish standoff.
It looks as if Belgium is quite sympathetic with Catalonia, contrary to EU mainstream.
Question: What is Belgium's position on Catalonia declaration of independence? If it is different from main EU countries position (Germany, France, UK), what is the purpose?
