Foreign relations of the Netherlands Antilles


Foreign relations of the Netherlands Antilles

The Netherlands Antilles is an autonomous entity within the Kingdom of the Netherlands and consists of the following five islands: Bonaire, Curaçao, Saba, Saint Eustatius and Saint Martin.

The Charter of the Kingdom of the Netherlands (in Dutch: Statuut) defines the association between the Netherlands, the Netherlands Antilles and Aruba. The overseas territories are autonomous, although there are a limited number of affairs which are handled by the Kingdom as a whole. These "Kingdom affairs" include foreign relations, among other things.
