US Ambassador to Serbia: Major changes in energy in the Balkans
The US Ambassador to Serbia, Christopher Hill, said in Belgrade today that “these days, these weeks, months” great changes can be expected in the energy sector both in the world and in the Western Balkans region.In a statement before the conference “Serbian-American Relations: Strategy for Energy Diversification” in the House of the National Assembly, Hill said that the topic of energy diversification was extremely important and added that “it was the right time” to discuss necessary steps.

“We will especially discuss what the United States can do to help Serbia in all this, and we will discuss further issues that are in the interest of our countries,” Hill announced.

Israeli Ambassador Jahel Villan said that Serbia and Israel have strengthened cooperation in the field of energy in the past two to three years. “We will continue to work on strengthening the good relations between our two countries,” Villan said.

Serbian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Energy and Mining Zorana Mihajlovic said that energy diversification is a very important topic for Serbia, which will be able to get energy from other suppliers through interconnections.

“Energy stability is also political stability,” Mihajlovic said, adding that Serbia, as the central country of the Western Balkans, can ensure its energy independence.
