EU leaders agreed Thursday to give the Netherlands guarantees that will enable it to ratify the bloc's association pact with Ukraine, which Dutch voters rejected in a referendum, Prime Minister Mark Rutte said.

"It wasn't easy, it wasn't pleasant, but it is necessary, because it ensures that the EU can continue to form a united front against destabilising Russian foreign policy," Rutte said.
