Germany to resist EU plans for car emissions cap


BERLIN, Jan 30 (Reuters) - European Union President Germany said on Tuesday it would resist any attempts from the European Commission to impose a general cap on auto emissions which would apply to all cars.

Chancellor Angela Merkel said in a speech to economists she regretted that voluntary targets were not being met.

"But we must not let the result of that be to impose a general obligation for all cars to be subject to the same measure," she said.
