EU Must Rally against Threat from US, Russia: Dutch PM

EU Must Rally against Threat from US, Russia
Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte on Wednesday urged the European Union to rally urgently behind a rules-based international order against threats from Russia and even the United States.

"Even the relationship with our most important ally is no longer self-evident," Rutte said in a speech to the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France which won a standing ovation.

Rutte echoed EU alarm over US President Donald Trump's decisions to pull out of the Paris Climate Agreement and the Iran nuclear deal as well as to impose tariffs on European steel and aluminum, AFP reported.

But he urged the 28-nation bloc to "keep working as closely as possible with the United States," which he said remained an ally nevertheless.
