Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman hopes that the citizens of the Netherlands will support the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement at the referendum in April.

He stated this during the meeting with Dutch Foreign Minister Bert Koenders in The Hague, the press service of the Ukrainian Parliament reports.

"Of course we are concerned about the referendum. However, we respect your right, your laws, and we hope that the citizens of the Netherlands will make the right choice," the Speaker said.

Groysman added that the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement did not pose any threat to the European Union but it was very important for the Ukrainians to feel the support for their European choice.

In turn, Koenders said that he had visited Maidan in Kyiv two years ago along with the ambassadors of the Benelux countries.

"It is obvious that it was the choice of the Ukrainian people in favor of the Association Agreement. The position of the Dutch government is to protect the signature, which we put under the Agreement," the Dutch Foreign Minister stressed.
