'Frugal' EU nations push back vs French-German recovery plan

The Netherlands has always taken a tough stance on economic aid for struggling southern European nations and the coronavirus pandemic does not appear to have changed that.

Without going into detail, Rutte said the proposal by the nations dubbed by some the Frugal Four would likely include tough conditions for loans.

"If you want help, you have to make far-reaching reforms so that you can look after yourself next time," Rutte told reporters. "Otherwise I can't explain it to the Netherlands that we want to help."
