He said the Russian president’s statement the project has been halted was regarded in Serbia as a message addressed in the first place to the EU members on which the gas pipeline’s construction depends heavily.Antic said that for the project to materialize there should be coordination between Brussels and Moscow. He voiced the hope that all outstanding issues will be resolved through talks and the parties will be able to clinch a deal.
“Of course, this project is of exclusive importance to the energy security of our country. Also, it is crucial to the employment of a considerable share of our construction industry, but regrettably we have no leverage to influence the pipeline’s future,” Antic said.
