Netherlands government backs ratification of EU-Ukraine association agreement

The Dutch government supports ratification of the association agreement between Ukraine and the European Union.

Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to Ukraine Kees Klompenhouwer said this during his speech at the Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“You know there will be a referendum on the association agreement in my country and I want to say that my government supports this aggreement and backs the signing of this association agreement,” the ambassador said.

He also added that the Dutch government will render comprehensive economic assistance to Ukraine, but only if reforms are implemented.

“The government of Ukraine must implement reforms,” Klompenhouwer said.

As a reminder, on April 6, 2016 the Netherlands will hold an advisory referendum on the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement.
