(CS) Luxembourg City mayor Xavier Bettel features in a new BBC video, showing Luxembourg's role as the EU's third admin city.

As part of a World News Watch series, the BBC travelled to Luxembourg to find out what role it plays in the running of the EU, stopping by Brussels and Strasbourg in two other video segments.

In Luxembourg, BBC journalist Adam Fleming stopped by the Place de l'Europe in Kirchberg, to take a closer look at the European Court of Justice, the European Investment Bank and the offices of the EU Parliament.

But the BBC also visited the office of Luxembourg City mayor Xavier Bettel in the City centre, where Bettel defended the various hubs of the EU, saying they represent the melting-pot nature of the EU.
