Belgian authorities have said there is agreement among its regions on the controversial EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), world media report.

Common ground has been reached on the agreement?s most controversial points, German daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung quotes officials as saying.

The announcement has been made just after a EU-Canada Summit was scrapped over the disagreement of Belgium?s French-speaking region of Wallonia to approve CETA without certain conditions being fulfilled.
