Proposals unveiled this week by the European Commission to amend the accession agreements with the ten countries joining the European Union (EU) next May to take account of recent changes to the EU common agricultural policy (CAP) have been rejected by Poland.

Its Europe minister Danuta Huebner has complained that the plans were “unacceptable”. Talking to EU political website, she dismissed Commission claims that the changes amounted to technical tinkering to bring the membership agreements in line with the new legal reality.

“The commission 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’,” said Huebner.
