Miroslav Lajcak, the Prime Minister of Slovakia, expressed confidence that the Netherlands will not be blocking EU-Ukraine association agreement. The politician delivered a speech at the Tuesday hearing of the Foreign Affairs Committee in the European Parliament (Radio Liberty).

Speaking about the key priorities of Slovakia’s chairmanship in the EU, Lajcak mentioned the referendum in the Netherlands that took place in April this year. ‘We’ve got to respect the results of the referendum. But I’m sure the Dutch government will find the decision that allows them to respect the plebiscite and will not block political association and economic integration between the EU and Ukraine’, he stressed. ‘Georgia and Ukraine lived up to their commitments, and the European Commission clearly confirmed that. Now it’s time for us to do our job, which means to grant them visa-free regime’.
