According to the annual report of the Energy Community (EC), this body will decide on sanctions against Serbia in October. Serbia failed to resolve the key issue of separation of activities in gas companies and the Ministerial Council will now decide on possible sanction against the country on its next meeting in Sarajevo on 14 October.
