Das sowas lächerliches in die Schlagzeilen kommt, sagt auch Vieles über einen Staat, denn die Ministerin soll ja auch noch Dokumente unterschreiben, aber noch keine Einladung zur Feier bekommen.
Minister Zorana Mihajlovic persona non grata at opening ceremony of Southern Stream
Serbia Minister of Energy Zorana Mihajlovic has not received an official invitation to attend the ceremony of the beginning of construction of the Southern Stream Gas Pipeline. ‘I believe I shall get it. I suppose that the Srbijagas and the Presidency are very busy preparing the ceremony and that is why the invitation has not been sent to me yet’, Minister Mihajlovic told Blic.
At Serbia Presidency they did not want to tell Blic why the name of the Minister of Energy had been omitted from the list of quests to attend the official ceremony of beginning of works on the Southern Stream in Serbia at Kovilje on Sunday.
‘The Government should have sent the final list of the ministers to attend the ceremony at Kovilje. As far as I know several ministers are to come’, Stanislava Pak, Advisor to Serbia President Tomislav Nikolic said shortly.
At the Government however they say that the main organizer of the ceremony is Serbia President’s Cabinet, as Blic was told by Milivoje Mihajlovic, the Government’s Spokesman.
Dusan Bajatovic, the first official of the Srbijagas denies that Minister Mihajlovic has been left out of the protocol.
‘It is not true that she has not been invited. She has been invited because she is to sign some documents there’, Bajatovic insisted in his statement to Blic.
As we learned unofficially Minister Mihajlovic was not to attend the ceremony as per the protocol.
