AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said on Tuesday his relations with other EU leaders remained strong, despite days of difficult negotiations about the European Union’s COVID-19 recovery fund.
“We are all professionals, we can take a few punches,” Rutte told reporters after European leaders had announced their deal.
“I am happy with this agreement, I see no disappointments in it.”
