Parliament supports new EU treaty 6/30/2007
28 June 2007

THE HAGUE – A large majority in Parliament is satisfied with the outcome of the European summit. Only the Socialist SP, Freedom Party PVV and Animal Rights Party PvdD spoke out against the new treaty during debate in Parliament.

Most factions are pleased that the new EU treaty is not a constitution, and that the Netherlands''s demand were met on a number of points. Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende lashed out at the SP, saying that the faction is acting as if the Netherlands had given up its veto right.

He says the Netherlands is still able to reject European decisions with regard to social security and defence and other areas.

The EU agreements will be put to paper in the coming weeks and then put before the national parliaments.
