(ANSA) - BRUSSELS, JAN 21 - The Dutch government is "open" to defensive military support for Ukraine.
Foreign Minister Wopke Hoekstra said this in parliament.
According to Hoekstra, Kiev yesterday asked the Netherlands for military assistance.
The parliamentary majority supports the request.
Hoekstra stressed that the government "will explicitly consider the current context".
Previously, the Netherlands were opposed to military aid to Ukraine.
But the situation has changed, the minister said.
The Netherlands would also be "open" to the supply of weapons through NATO, if a request were made to do so.
