Netherlands still looking for ways to ratify EU-Ukraine Association Agreement

The Dutch government has not yet identified the political and legal formula to complete ratification of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement, taking into account the negative results of the relevant referendum held in April.

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said this after the European Council meeting, an Ukrinform correspondent in Brussels reports.

"We need a solution that will have legal force and include a lot of issues and discussions raised during the referendum in the Netherlands. And I still do not know the exact formula for this. This can be amendments to the wording or a solution that does not involve changes in the wording of the Association Agreement. I do not know still," the Dutch Prime Minister said.

Rutte warned that if the solution was not found, the Netherlands would not sign the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement.
