In March, the Czech Republic filed for an injunction with the European Court of Justice, saying the Turów open-cast mine on the Polish-Czech border was draining groundwater away from surrounding areas and harming Czech citizens.

The Turów mine, run by Poland’s state-run energy company PGE, continues to operate despite a ruling by the European Court of Justice to stop mining activities immediately until a final judgement is delivered.

Poland’s government spokesman Piotr Müller said on Tuesday that the Czech government had adopted a negotiation procedure to terminate the dispute and ensure a speedy deal between the two neighbouring countries.

Radio Poland's Agnieszka Bielawska has the story.
