The special envoy of the European Union for dialogue between Kosovo and Serbia, Miroslav Lajcak, announced today that the Serbian company "Elektrosever" signed a commercial energy agreement with the Kosovo Electricity Distribution Company (KEDS), the MIA correspondent from Belgrade reported.

- This is an important step towards the implementation of the Energy Roadmap and towards the normalization of relations between Kosovo and Serbia, Lajcak wrote on the social network H.

He did not state where and when the said agreement was signed.

"Electrosever" is owned by the energy company of Serbia - Public Enterprise "Electroprivreda Serbia" (EPS), but is registered in Kosovo under Kosovo laws.

In 2013, Kosovo and Serbia, within the dialogue mediated by the European Union, reached an agreement on energy, which aims to regulate the issue of electricity supply and billing in four municipalities in the north, where the majority Serbian population lives.

However, this agreement was not implemented and in June 2022 the parties reached an agreement on the implementation of the existing energy agreement through the "Energy Roadmap".

However, even this Roadmap was not implemented, and the EU admitted during the last year that there were delays in its implementation, stressing that the final responsibility for the implementation of the guide rests with Kosovo and Serbia.
