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 legal reality.
may not want to renegotiate, but seeing as these proposals are unacceptable
in their current 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.
