Polish prime minister: coal remains important for country as it seeks more sources of energy

WARSAW, Poland - Poland's prime minister says coal will continue to be the country's main energy source despite its push to diversify and reduce carbon emissions.

Europe is seeking energy security as its major supplier, Russia, is threatening to cut gas deliveries in a price dispute with Ukraine, a recipient and a transit route.

Poland has looked into other forms of energy, such as shale gas. But coal will remain key as the country has rich deposits and experience using it.

Donald Tusk said Thursday that "Poland's energy sector will largely be based on coal," both the black and brown varieties.

Speaking near a planned brown coal mine near Gubin, on the border with Germany, Tusk said environmentally friendly technologies will be applied to limit carbon emissions, in line with the global policy.
