Belgium ‘doing everything to make Brussels safe’

Brussels, May 4 (IANS) Belgium is doing everything to make Brussels safe for tourists and business travellers, Prime Minister Charles Michel on Wednesday told his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe, who is here on an official visit.

Belgian newspaper Le Soir said security and the fight against terrorism were the key topics discussed at a meeting between the two leaders, Xinhua news agency reported.
