EU needs agreement on Poland sanctions - Merkel

The rule of law is one of the fundamental tenets of the European Union, which is why the bloc should present as a unified front in issues such as reaching an agreement with Poland, as well as migration and economic issues, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Thursday.

Merkel stated that EU-imposed economic sanctions could be a way to condemn the actions of Belarus. Additionally, Merkel expressed the opinion that the government should be "reasonable" regarding energy prices, in order to protect the market.

"We have to find ways of coming back together because a cascade of cases at the European court is not a solution," Merkel said at the EU summit in Brussels.
