Talks on forming a new Dutch government continued in secrecy on Thursday, news agency ANP said, quoting sources close to the talks.
The leaders of the two Liberal parties VVD and D66, the Christian Democrats and the left-wing green party GroenLinks met early in the morning at the prime minister’s official Catshuis residence.
The four parties, together with mediator Herman Tjeenk Willink, are looking again at whether they can start formal negotiations. Talks between the four parties fell apart earlier because of divisions over immigration policy.
VVD leader Mark Rutte and GroenLinks chief Jesse Klaver met with Tjeenk Willink at his home in Scheveningen on Wednesday.
