 Netherlands said "no" to Ukraine over lack of truthful information, - Minister Klimkin

The Netherlands said "no" to Ukraine at the referendum because of the lack of truthful information.

Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin said at a briefing on Thursday, Censor.NET reports referring to RBC-Ukraine.

"Many deputies, civil society, many of those who came to vote, said "no" to Ukraine for two key reasons. First, it's about the attitude of the Dutch to the European Union, second, it's about myths that had been spread," Klimkin said.

He added that the Dutch received either curtailed or distorted information.

As previously reported, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte promised to start talks with the EU about amending the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement and asked to postpone the withdrawal of the Netherlands' signature on the document.
