Slovakia may cut electricity exports to Germany and other European Union states unless the bloc’s governments meet its demand to modify an emergency energy proposal, the country’s premier said. 

EU member states are set to clinch a deal on the unprecedented package to intervene in the energy market at a ministerial meeting on Friday in Brussels. It includes a cap on lower-cost power producers’ revenue from electricity that Slovakia argues isn’t fit for its national power industry.
