     BRUSSELS (MNI) - Talks on forming a new government restarted in the
Netherlands Wednesday after a three-week summer break, Dutch news reported.
     Prime Minister Mark Rutte has remained in place since the March 15
election, as  negotiations between four parties are yet to hit a breakthrough
for the formation of a new coalition.
     Rutte's centre-right VVD party won 33 seats, the largest number of any
party. But the result still denies them an overall majority in the 150-seat
house.
     All parties refuse to negotiate with the second-largest grouping, the PVV
party, led by far-right firebrand Geert Wilders.
     Instead, Dutch media report that the VVD will hold meetings with 3 possible
coalition partners: the next-largest centre-right CDA, the liberal D66 and
ChristianUnie (CU) party. If struck, a deal between the parties would reach 76
seats.
     Dutch daily Financieele Dagblad reported Wednesday that differences
remained between the D66 and the CU on medical ethics.
     "On money you can reach a compromise. On principles you can't," it quoted
CU negotiator Gert-Jan Segers as saying.
     FD added that talks would continue Thursday.
