The Serbian government adopted the energy agreement between Serbia and Italy without changes, and returned it to the Parliament to be adopted urgently, energy minister Zorana Mihajlovic said today.
Virtually nothing was changed from the previous energy agreement signed in 2009, Mihajlovic said, adding that she expects this document to be in the parliamentary debate for 10 to 15 days and that it will be adopted.
The minister told reporters after opening the forum said that annex 1 of the agreement remained, in which projects are listed including hydro power plants to be built on the Drina in cooperation with Italian partners and partners from Republic Srpska.
Our obligation was to check with Italian partners if they accept the Annex 1 because in the meantime several new projects appeared and there was a proposal from the Republic Srpska to change some plans, specified Mihajlovic.
She pointed out that they gave up on it and that the agreement with Italy was passed virtually unchanged.
