Canada and the European Union say they remain hopeful a landmark free trade deal can go ahead despite three Belgian regions led by Wallonia blocking it.

European Council President Donald Tusk said it was still possible Ceta could be signed as planned and Canada's trade minister said the deal was "not dead".

But Belgium has said it cannot back the deal because three French-speaking parts of the country oppose it.

Ceta needs the support of all 28 EU nations before it can be approved.
