BRUSSELS (Reuters) – Talks between negotiators for the EU nations and the European Parliament over reforms to the EU Emissions Trading System (ETS) after 2020 ended without an agreement early on Friday, EU presidency Estonia said.

The EU is aiming to reach a deal over carbon market reforms ahead of United Nations climate talks in November. A spokeswoman for the Estonian presidency of the EU said another round of negotiations would be required.
