The first negotiations on the Turów mine after the Czech parliamentary elections did not end with the conclusion of an agreement. However, the Poles submitted a new proposal, the Polish newspaper Rzeczpospolita said today. He added that the Czech party’s position on the Polish proposal to end the dispute should be announced on Monday. According to the daily, the Polish proposal concerns the existing stumbling block between Warsaw and Prague, ie the period of validity and the possibility of terminating the contract. But he did not provide details.
“The offer we submitted to the Czech side is the best proof of the goodwill of the Polish side. It protects and secures the current and future interests of the inhabitants of Polish and Czech border regions, including the Liberec region,” Anna Moskwová, new Polish Minister of Climate and Environment, told Polish radio during her first visit to Prague. She also assured that Poland was ready to contribute to the relevant fund.
“Even before the talks in Prague, the Polish delegation emphasized that little was enough to reach an agreement. But today it did not work out,” the letter stated.
He reminded that in February the Czechia sued Poland before the Court of Justice of the European Union over the extension of mining in the Turów mine, approaching the Czech border, where, according to the Czechs, it threatens the water supply of the surrounding municipalities. In response to the Czech lawsuit, an EU court in May ordered that coal mining in the mine be stopped immediately. The Polish government refused to suspend mining, but began negotiations with the Czech side. The talks at the end of September ended in fiasco and did not reach an agreement due to disagreements over how long the agreement should apply and whether it could be terminated, Rzeczpospolita recalled.
