just-food.com: Poland has rejected new proposals
that will make it and the other nine countries up for
entry into the European Union liable for recent changes
to the EU common agricultural policy (CAP).
Poland’s Europe minister Danuta Huebner has complained
that the plans were “unacceptable”. Talking
to EU political website Eupolitix.com, she dismissed Commission
claims that the changes amounted to technical tinkering
to bring the membership agreements in line with the new
“The commission may not want to renegotiate, but

form, we’re going to have to at least ‘rediscuss’,”
The proposals were unveiled this week by the European
Commission to amend the accession agreements with the
ten countries joining the European Union (EU) next May.
