German minister warns EU against toughening car emissions targets

BERLIN, Nov 7 (Reuters) - German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel has told European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker that he is against any toughening of European car emissions targets by 2025.

“It is ... very important to me that we do not stifle the innovation power of the automotive industry by overly tight EU legislation,” Gabriel said in letter seen by Reuters. (Reporting by Markus Wacket; Writing by Michael Nienaber)
