Netherlands doesn’t want to receive American Congress delegation

A delegation of the American Congress has asked to visit The Netherlands for a dialogue, but have not received a positive answer.  Insiders say that Minister Koenders of Foreign Affairs (Labor Party) is not interested in the visit.  The reason appears to be that he considers it too expensive and the employees of his ministry feel it will involve too much work.  The Americans want to come because The Netherlands will be chairing the EU during the first half of 2016.   Mario Diaz-Balart, the leader of the intended Congress delegation, said this is a slap in the face for Congress.
