The Senate of the Netherlands has supported the ratification of the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the European Union, according to an UNIAN correspondent.

The voting for the relevant legislative act took place in The Hague in the framework of the plenary session of the Senate on Tuesday, May 30.

The Senate consists of 75 members.

The legislative act must be signed by the King of the Netherlands Willem-Alexander and shall enter into force after publication in the State Journal.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the lower chamber of the Dutch Parliament on February 23 upheld a government-proposed bill providing for the ratification of the Ukraine-EU Association Agreement. Ratification by the Dutch Senate was obligatory.

The Netherlands was the last EU member state that ratified the agreement.
