BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel told lawmakers he would offer his resignation to the king after socialists and greens tabled a motion of no confidence in his minority government.

Michel relaunched his government a week ago as a minority administration after the Flemish N-VA, the biggest party in his coalition, quit in a dispute over signing the U.N. migration pact.
