20 November 2015 The Dutch Minister for Agriculture and the Environment, Sharon Dijksma, visited London on Monday 18 November.

16 November 2015 I am deeply shocked by the attacks in Paris yesterday evening. The Netherlands feels a strong bond with France. We stand alongside the French people in mourning the victims. Together with France, we will continue to steadfastly defend freedom against those who use terror to try and undermine it. We will never give up our values of freedom and solidarity. Our thoughts are with all those who are now grieving the loss of their loved ones, and with all the victims of these cowardly attacks.
