Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte acknowledged “the horrific suffering inflicted on slaves” in Suriname, following his two-day visit to the South American country, which was a colony of the Netherlands until its independence in 1975.

“Recognition is the beginning of our present. I look forward to learning more about the social impact of this visit. I want to hear firsthand what the past of slavery means today for different groups of population in Suriname,” Rutte said.
