Dutch PM calls U.S. exit from nuclear deal ‘clumsy’

May 19, 2018 - 4:36

Prime Minister of Netherlands Mark Rutte said on Wednesday that the U.S. decision to withdraw from the 2015 nuclear deal on May 9 was “clumsy”.

During an EU summit in the Bulgarian capital of Sofia, he said the EU leaders agreed that the European Union should play a stronger role on the political world stage, NOS reported.

“As Europe, we already have a major leading role in the world. But Europe will have to give more substance to that role with more confidence. You also see that in the area of Iran: we want to try and uphold as many of these agreements as possible,” he said.
