Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic said on Monday that no one should prejudice the decisions that will be taken by Serbian state bodies and international institutions about the Telekom-Telenor deal.

“The Telenor group is from a European Union member state and let’s not prejudice a solution if we believe in and constantly invoke rule of law and the strengthening of institutions,” the Prime Minister said at an online debate with the National Convent on the European Union.

Commenting a claim that the Telekom-Telenor deal was made to dominate the media market, Brnabic said that Telekom has to operate in line with its own and the interests of the state which has part ownership in the company. “The Competition Protection Agency and international organizations have to rule on the deal but let’s not prejudice a solution,” she said.
