AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said on Saturday he had spoken with Boris Johnson after parliament forced the British prime minister to seek a further delay to Brexit before it votes on the new divorce deal.
“We discussed the situation around Brexit,” Rutte said in a statement. “I wished him success in the next steps in the British Parliament.”
Rutte said the two leaders have agreed to keep in close contact.
