European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker is "sad" at the outcome of the Dutch referendum on the European Union's ties with Ukraine, his spokesman Margaritis Schinas says, adding that the Dutch government must now decide on its course of action.
"The commission remains strongly committed to the development of its relations with Ukraine," Schinas says, adding that the EU's executive will later this month present a proposal to grant Ukrainian citizens visa-free travel, as planned.
Asked about possible links between the negative Dutch result and Britain's EU membership referendum in June, Schinas said, "These are two different processes. They are two different issues."
