BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte on Friday said he saw less than a 50% chance that European leaders would reach a deal on the European Recovery Fund at their summit in Brussels.
“I would say less than 50%, but let’s be hopeful”, the Prime Minister said as negotiations on the fund were about to start.
“You never know, we could still come to a compromise. It’s still possible.”
