Let $X$ be as smooth variety over a field $k$ of characteristic $0$.

Consider the following statements:

• The variety $X$ has no $k((t))$-rational points.
• No smooth compactification of $X$ has a $k$-rational point.

Are they these equivalent? If not, what additional assumptions on $X$ would make them equivalent? I'm particularly interested in the case where $X$ is a homogenous space of a "nice" algebraic group over $k$.
