The Polish parliament adopted on Thursday a resolution initiated by the ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party, calling for the EU budget talks to resume in order to achieve an agreement on the budget that is in line with the bloc’s treaties and the Council’s conclusions from July.

In the resolution, parliament also agreed it will not approve any solutions that do not ensure the rights of every EU member state are respected.

Moreover, the resolution also provides that any unclear or imprecise provisions that could block the funds from the budget by a decision of the European Commission shall be rejected.

The opposition – which saw three of its draft resolutions rejected in parliament  – was against the resolution’s adoption. (Monika Mojak| EURACTIV.pl)
