Dutch Foreign Minister Halbe Zijlstra on Tuesday evening handed in his resignation, saying it had been "the biggest mistake of my career" to lie about meeting the Russian president in 2006.

Dutch MPs rejected a vote of no confidence in Prime Minister Mark Rutte, after the resignation of Foreign Minister Halbe Zeister.

Rippon Responds on Social Media to Haters Hoping He'll Fail
USA figure skater Adam Rippon made a splash in his Olympic debut but, just a few years ago, he was struggling to make ends meet. Rippon, 28, who is the US's first openly gay Winter Olympics athlete, has impressed people with his frankness in PyeongChang.

Rutte's four-party coalition has only a one-seat majority in the 150-seat lower house, but he sailed through the vote with 101 MPs voting against the motion, and only 43 in favour. It was brought by Gert Wilders, the leader of the Dutch right-wing Party of Freedom. "That's why I see no other option than to resign", said Zijlstra, who had held the job for less than four months.

Junior Foreign Minister Sigrid Kaag, who led a United Nations mission to destroy Syria's chemical weapons in 2013-2014, will assume Zijlstra's responsibilities until a permanent replacement is found, a government official said. Several MPs were angry at Prime Minister Rutte that he did not act immediately after being informed of the case three weeks ago. The delay was due to Zijlstra's busy diary and the fact he was ill for a time, Rutte said. The lie, which cost the post of foreign minister, was uttered in 2016.
