Polish PM Tusk: Cohesion and CAP funds not targets for cuts in EU budget talks

Poland enjoys “relative safety” for its chief economic interests in EU budgeting talks thanks to commitments by chief EU players not to cut cohesion and farming funds when plotting further cuts to 2014-2020 EU budget, Prime Minister Donald Tusk told a briefing at the conclusion of the summit.

“Parting ways on the conditions we have today is relatively safe from the point of view of our interests,” Tusk told reporters, “but as long as we have no budget, I will remain cautious.”

Tusk cited statements from the EU’s net payers that “cohesion and CAP (Common Agricultural Policy) funds are not their targets for cuts.”
