The political bickering has been going on for some time now. Mr Peeters (Flemish Christian democrat) says he is not too happy about that.
"I have always advocated a rational approach of the state reform", he is quoted as saying by the Francophone daily Le Soir. "However, I am seeing that they are constantly blaming each other, with the reproaches turning into real fights."
Mutual respect is the answer, Mr Peeters says. "It's an important condition to reach an agreement on a state reform. The different players should come up with concrete proposals."
