April 7, 2016 On 6 april 2016 an advisory referendum was held in the Netherlands on the EU-association agreement with Ukraine. The preliminary outcome shows that the required threshold for a valid outcome of a turn-out of 30% or more was reached, with a clear majority for the people who voted against.

March 23, 2016 Following a number of attacks in Brussels on Tuesday morning, Prime Minister Mark Rutte and Minister of Foreign Affairs Bert Koenders have been in contact with their Belgian colleagues. Both sent their condolences, expressed the Netherlands’ solidarity with Belgium and offered practical support. Much remains unclear at the moment. The maximum threat level is now in effect across Belgium. The EU cancelled all working group meetings scheduled for the morning of Tuesday 22 March. Mr Koenders, speaking from Indonesia, urged Dutch nationals not to travel to Brussels. ‘Right now, we don’t yet know if there are the Dutch nationals among the victims,’ he said. ‘The embassy is working with the local authorities to determine whether this is the case.’ For the latest information regarding travel to Belgium, consult the travel advice issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs advises you against travelling to Brussels at present, until more is known about the situation.
