“The implementation of the agreement begins on Tuesday, which means that the talks will be launched as of today, involving the Electric Power Industry of Serbia (EPS), Kosovo Transmission System and Market Operator (KOSTT) and the Kosovo Energy Corporation (KEK),” the minister said.

She was attending an event to mark the 10th anniversary of the Siemens wind farm generator plant in Subotica, northern Serbia.

“Our regulatory agencies will mutually recognise the existing licences,” Mihajlović told Tanjug on Monday, adding that Elektrokosmet as the electricity supplier would become the distributor and supplier for northern Kosovo-Metohija as well.

"After 16 painstaking rounds of talks in Brussels, an agreement has finally been drafted that guarantees energy security, and the most important matter for Serbia is that northern Kosovo with majority Serb population gets electricity," Mihajlović said.
