EU backs ban on fossil fuel cars, as Berlin lifts veto

The 27 EU member states approved Monday a deal between Brussels and Germany that lifted Berlin's block on a planned phaseout of new sales of fossil fuel cars by 2035.

A spokesman for Sweden, which holds the EU presidency, said ambassadors backed the agreement. Energy ministers are expected to give the final green light on Tuesday during a meeting in Brussels.
