BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Poland will respect the ruling of the European Union's top court on whether the government can continue logging in the primeval forest of Bialowieza that is under an EU environment protection plan, Poland's Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said.

Speaking to reporters in Brussels before an EU leaders' summit, Morawiecki said "of course we will respect the final ruling" after all legal procedures are exhausted.
