Dutch government approves draft law to ratify Ukraine pact

THE HAGUE, , (Pakistan Point News - APP - 16th Dec, 2016 ) : The Dutch government Friday approved a draft law needed to ratify the EU's historic pact with Ukraine after reaching a compromise with Brussels following a referendum in which Dutch voters rejected the deal. "We (the Dutch cabinet) find it is necessary to ratify this accord," Prime Minister Mark Rutte said of the draft law, which still needs approval from parliament before the Netherlands can sign up to the deal with Kiev.
