“In Ukraine, we need a binding legal decision that will respond to the concerns and the elements of the debate in the Netherlands, which led to the referendum. I don’t know yet about the exact form. We may have to change the text, perhaps we will find a solution that will not concern the text of the association agreement”, told Rutte to journalists after the EU summit.


He noted that “the main thing is with a binding legal way to respond to the concerns expressed during the debate in the Netherlands”.
