Brussels reaches an agreement with Germany to lift the veto on the ban on combustion engines in 2035

The European Commission (EC) has announced this Saturday that it has reached an agreement for Germany to lift its last-minute veto on the legislation already negotiated and agreed so that from 2035 only cars that do not emit CO2 can be sold in the European Union.

“We have reached an agreement with Germany on the future use of electric fuels in cars”, announced on Twitter the executive vice-president of the EC in charge of the European Green Pact, Frans Timmermans.

The Dutch politician has added that now the Community Executive will work to “get the regulation of CO2 standards for cars adopted as soon as possible” and that the Commission “will quickly continue with the legal steps necessary to implement recital 11”.

Last Friday, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz had already insisted that Berlin and Brussels would be able to reach an agreement for the country to lift the veto.

“I know that journalism is also part of the entertainment industry and it seems silly for us to agree, but it will happen,” said the German president jokingly at a press conference after the European summit held in Brussels, asked about the German blockade of that star measure of the European Union’s climate policy.
