Sweden Objects to EU Environment Delay

Published onsdag 28 juni 2006 kl 11.37

Sweden has objected to a compromise on European Union air quality discussed by environment ministers in Luxembourg Tuesday.

Swedish Environment Minister Lena Sommestad says this country will not accept a downgrading in EU environmental laws. Speaking to the Council of Ministers, she pointed out that around 350,000 EU citizens die prematurely every year because of particulates, or fine dust, in the air.

Ministers gave preliminary approval to draft rules that would bring the EU up to American standards in capping emissions of particulates. Despite the Swedish objections, efforts to speed up proposals for stronger vehicle emissions standards stalled.
