BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said he secured an exemption from 2050 climate neutrality for Poland in what he described as “difficult” talks at a summit of EU leaders in Brussels.

He said generous funding for economic transition was promised for regions “most affected” by phasing out fossil fuels and that the EU explicitly recognised nuclear energy as admissible as the bloc pushes to reduce emissions.
