"Molenbeek is less far if you want to make a trip abroad"

A couple of quotes by Belgium's Foreign Minister Didier Reynders in the Senate have made waves.

"The roads in Afghanistan are bad, but if you come from Wallonia, you're used to something", Reynders was quoted as saying. This triggered an angry reaction from Philippe Moureaux, a Senator for the PS (Francophone socialists) and the Mayor of the Brussels suburb of Molenbeek, which is why Didier Reynders added some fuel to the flames: "I had better gone to Molenbeek, it's less far if you want to go abroad."
