As reported by Censor.NET citing Gazeta Wyborcza, this was stated by Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte in The Hague.
As noted, such a declaration must contain a provision that the association agreement will not be the first step on the path to Ukraine's membership in the European Union.
As reported by NRC Handelsblad, Rutte says that a legally binding declaration must also stipulate that the EU will not grant military and additional financial assistance to Ukraine.
Moreover, the agreement must not provide for the right to free movement of labor force between Ukraine and the European Union.
Earlier, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said the Netherlands were not going to stop the ratification of the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU and would continue consultations that were to end on Nov. 1.
Even before, the Dutch parliament ordered the government to decide on the ratification until November 2016.
Prime Minister Mark Rutte said the government was unlikely to ratify the document, given the results of the April referendum.
On April 6, 2016, 61 percent of the Dutch that came to the referendum cast their votes against the ratification.
