Pyatt disappointed by outcome of Dutch referendum

United States Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt has said he is disappointed by the results of a Dutch referendum on Ukraine’s association agreement with the European Union, but he respects democratic practices of the Netherlands.

“We’re disappointed by the results of a Dutch referendum, but we respect democratic practices of the Netherlands,” the U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine told journalists in Kyiv, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

According to Pyatt, the association is good for Ukraine, Europe, peoples of Europe, and the United States. That’s why the U.S. will continue to support the full implementation of an association agreement, Pyatt said.

The ambassador also added that in this regard Ukraine’s steps in the fight against corruption and the supremacy of law are of great importance.
