The Second Chamber wants the government any more money out for art – and cultural projects in a ring of countries around Europe where it is restless.

The government supports projects in Morocco, Turkey, Egypt, Mali, the Palestinian territories, Lebanon and Russia in the hope of contributing to the peace and order in those countries. For the projects is but a small amount has been earmarked, but that is also according to the Second Room too much.

A majority under the leadership of outgoing VVD-Member of parliament Michiel van Veen called to minister Bert Koenders of Foreign Affairs and his colleague Jet Bussemaker (Culture) Tuesday to put an end to the subsidies.

Koenders made earlier this year is still strong for the projects because that a bridge would save the rest of the world. “Cultural cooperation can make a significant contribution to a safe and just world”, he said.
