BRUSSELS, Feb 21 (Reuters) - Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said the next EU budget must not contain rebates for net payers.
His Polish counterpart, Mateusz Morawiecki, said an idea to replenish the 2021-27 budget with part of national proceeds from carbon emissions trading through the Emissions Trading System (ETS) was rejected.
They spoke after an EU leader’s summit failed to yield a deal on the bloc’s next long-term budget. (Reporting by Gabriela Baczynska, Francesco Guarascio)
