Germany says not enough progress in rule of law spat with Poland

LUXEMBOURG (Reuters) - The European Commission must continue dialogue with Poland about the rule of law, as the results so far do not show sufficient progress, Germany’s EU minister said on Tuesday.

“In spite of the progress made, the results are not sufficient. That’s why we believe the Commission should continue its dialogue with Poland,” Michael Roth said on arriving to a meeting of EU ministers in Luxembourg.

“At least things are moving in the right direction, even though it may not be going quickly enough for some,” Roth added.
