They approved a package to fight the energy price surge that has been plaguing the EU caused by Russia's war with Ukraine.

Belgium, Greece, Poland and Italy disagree with the Commission's claim that such a move would require "significant financial resources" to purchase emergency gas if market prices exceed the cap.
