BRUSSELS, BELGIUM (JULY 16, 2020) (REUTERS) PRIME MINISTER OF LUXEMBOURG, XAVIER BETTEL, ENTERING ROOM AND GREETING JOURNALIST PICTURE OF GRAND DUKE HENRI OF LUXEMBOURG / BETTEL TALKING BETTEL SAYING THAT HE BROUGHT AN EXTRA SHIRT BETTEL TALKING (SOUNDBITE) (English) PRIME MINISTER OF LUXEMBOURG, XAVIER BETTEL, SAYING: "I really hope there is a good chance (to find a deal on the EU budget and recovery fund). When we come to Brussels, homeworks will have been done before. It's not like we come here and start from scratch. Fact is that there are some critical points and we need to be able to discuss them. We see that it was very difficult through video conference to move on and to get agreements, so I think that the physical presence is important to make breaks, to make bilaterals, to make groups and to have a dynamic of discussions to find a compromise afterwards." BETTEL TALKING (SOUNDBITE) (English) PRIME MINISTER OF LUXEMBOURG, XAVIER BETTEL, SAYING: "I don't want to be misunderstood, but the solidarity is also in the interest of all of us. If Italy or Spain collapses, because they have and economic crisis and afterwards a social crisis, it's not in the interest of all the other countries. So the solidarity is also in our interest. To be honest, it's solidarity also in our interest. We should not forget that. This European project is to be able to give today and get maybe something bigger tomorrow." BETTEL SPEAKING (SOUNDBITE) (English) PRIME MINISTER OF LUXEMBOURG, XAVIER BETTEL, SAYING: "If we accept this (having LGBT-free zones in Poland), tomorrow it will be religions and we should not forget that yesterday in our history, it was religion, it was gypsies, it was disabled, it was gay persons, it was left wing politicians. We should never forget, we should never forget. I don't want to compare, but if we accept that beginning of blaming others for being different... I think that Europe's strength is that we are different." INTERVIEW ENDING
