Dutch prime minister regrets and rejects Trump's Muslim country entry ban
Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte has issued a statement saying he regrets the decision by US present Donald Trump to ban all refugees and people from seven Muslim countries from entering the US.
The statement comes after almost every opposition party urged the prime minister to speak out against the ban.
'The Netherlands is convinced that refugees from war and violence deserve a safe haven, regardless of their ethnicity or beliefs. We will continue to put forward this view,' Rutte and foreign minister Bert Koenders said in the joint statement.
