17:04, 23 May 2017

The Dutch Senate discusses the ratification of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement. It is expected that the Prime Minister of the Netherlands Mark Rutte and the Foreign Minister Bert Koenders will attend the debates.

The Netherlands is the last EU member country that did not complete the ratification procedure yet. According to results of the Dutch referendum, most of the citizens refused the ratification of the document.

However, since the plebiscite was purely consultative, the Dutch PM came up with appendix to the document that unblocked the further process of ratification.
