This morning’s first response of Prime Minister Rutte on the outcome of the United Kingdom referendum

Prime Minister Rutte: ‘The result of the UK referendum is disappointing. We must now look for stable solutions, calmly, and one step at a time. It is important to ensure stability. We are in the process of reforming the European Union. This result is an incentive to carry on with that reform and work hard for more prosperity, more jobs and more security. Particularly for a country like the Netherlands, cooperation is of vital importance.’
