"It is believed that he had an allergic reaction to medication he took for the first time yesterday," the ministry said in a statement.

"He is currently under observation in a Brussels hospital. Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere agreed on short notice to travel to Brussels and lead the German delegation at today's meeting."
