European Union leaders have reached a compromise on the EU's joint position ahead of the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen in December 2009, Bulgarian-language Dnevnik daily said on October 30 2009.

Bulgaria was among the nine Eastern European countries that managed to negotiate better terms for themselves in the joint EU position on providing financial aid to developing countries on carbon emissions.

The share of every EU member state will now be calculated based on its GDP, its financial state and the number of its carbon emissions, Dnevnik said.

According to Prime Minister Boiko Borissov, Bulgaria would save between 40 to 50 million euro annually from the deal.

"The decision guarantees that we will not be donors to countries such as China, India, Brazil and Russia," Borissov was quoted as saying by Dnevnik.

The actual amount of every EU member payment will be negotiated in the next couple of weeks by a working group.
