Angela Merkel faced down calls from Emmanuel Macron and other EU leaders to punish Poland in her last summit as Chancellor.
Amid mounting fears the battle over rule of law could collapse the bloc, the German chancellor called on her counterparts to cool tensions over Poland’s challenge to the primacy of EU law.
Mrs Merkel, 67, urged the bloc to learn the lessons of Brexit, which the veteran leader warned was a completely avoidable divorce.
Her call for peace came amid a flurry of threats to withhold tens of billions of EU funds from Poland after the country’s constitutional court ruled that its laws have supremacy over European rules.
Poland’s prime minister, Mateusz Morawiecki, said he would not bow down to the pressure of blackmail over the issue.
