Ukraine expects the Netherlands to accomplish the process of ratification of the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the European Union.

Vice Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration Ivanna Klympush-Tsyntsadze was addressing the Verkhovna Rada during the hour of questions to the government, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

The vice prime minister expressed a regret with a recent statement by Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte who voiced doubts regarding the ratification of the Association Agreement due to the April referendum on the matter in that country.

Ivanna Klympush-Tsyntsadze said the stance showed that the government of the Netherlands was not ready to take responsibility for the joint decision of the Dutch government and the Parliament adopted in July 2015 when the ratification procedures were completed. And now the government of the Netherlands strives to take into account the advisory referendum.

The Vice Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration of Ukraine voiced confidence that the ratification of the Association Agreement between the European Union and Ukraine would benefit the peoples of both Ukraine and the Netherlands.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko in June 2016 called on the Netherlands to accomplish the process of the ratification of the Association Agreement between the European Union and Ukraine.
