Romania stands ready to deliver Serbia electric power and coal for the country’s power plants at the best possible price during the upcoming winter if needs arise, Serbian Minister of Energy and Mining Aleksandar Antic told Tanjug on Monday, quoted by InSerbia.

Romanian Energy Minister Razvan Nicolescu said that the Romanian government would support Serbia should it need additional quantities of electric power and coal.

The Serbian energy minister said that the two countries’ energy ministries had agreed in Bucharest to provide full support for the construction of a trans-Balkan corridor, a 400 kV electrical energy transmission system project that was being prepared by the Elektromreze Srbije (EMS) public enterprise together with partners from Romania and other countries of the region.

The section of the new network linking Serbia and Romania will be from the Romanian city of Resita to the Serbian town of Pancevo, Antic said, adding that the two governments would fully support the project’s implementation.
