Poland Ready to Delay EU Pension Talks Until March, PAP Says

Dec. 7 (Bloomberg) -- Poland may postpone talks with the European Commission on private pension funds’ contribution to its budget deficit and debt to avoid disrupting the bloc’s Dec. 16-17 summit, Finance Minister Jacek Rostowski was quoted today as saying by PAP newswire.

Pension-fund accounting is an issue that can be “put off,” Rostowski told reporters at the end of a meeting of EU finance ministers in Brussels, PAP reported. “It’s in Poland’s interest not to set this matter on the knife’s edge and to wait until March,” when the EU holds the next quarterly summit, the agency cited the finance minister as saying.

Poland prefers to concentrate on preventing EU budget cuts after 2013 that could slash aid to the 27-nation bloc’s poorer countries, PAP reported, without saying where it obtained information.
