The following is an on-the-record comment from Ambassador-at-Large for Global Women’s Issues Melanne Verveer:

The United States welcomes the Dutch government's pledge as part of the Equal Futures Partnership to support women's political and economic participation, particularly in the Middle East North Africa region. This is another iteration of the joint agreement between Secretary Clinton and Foreign Minister Rosenthal and we look forward to collaborating with the Dutch government on this important initiative.
