Serbian Deputy PM Resigns Because of NIS sale

Serbian economics minister Mladjan Dinkic, who opposed state-owned company NIS sale to Russian Gazprom, is resigning as head of the working group dealing with the contract

The news was reported on Thursday by the Serbian TV channel B92, citing government sources.

Serbian economics minister Mladjan Dinkic is known to be a harsh critic of the deal's financial terms, saying they are too beneficial for Gazprom Neft.

A Serbian delegation led by President Boris Tadic will arrive in Moscow next week to sign three oil and gas deals with Russian energy giant Gazprom.
