AMSTERDAM - The Russian Embassy in the Netherlands on Tuesday rejected as "fake news" comments by the Dutch foreign minister about an aggressive Russian plan to create a greater Russia.

Dutch Foreign Minister Halbe Zijlstra admitted on Monday he had lied in 2016 about attending a meeting at which Russian President Vladimir Putin was said to have detailed the expansion plans.
