“We’re disappointed by the results, but we do respect the views of the Dutch people and we respect the Dutch political process,” Toner said at a daily press briefing in Washington on April 6, own Ukrinform correspondent reports.

He also noted that the Dutch government should decide on further steps in this issue and the United States would respect this process.
