BRUSSELS, June 24 (Reuters) - Luxembourg Prime Minister Xavier Bettel said a new Hungarian anti-LGBT law was unacceptable as he arrived for talks with his fellow EU leaders in Brussels on Thursday and Friday.

The 27 national leaders are due to discuss the contentious new Hungarian law on Thursday evening. While some 16 EU countries already condemned it, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on Thursday he had no plans to repeal it.
