Kosovo won’t get telephone code in 2015
Prishtina - Kosovo will not get its own telephone code in 2015 as foreseen in the telecommunications agreement reached in the EU-brokered dialogue with Serbia.
Edita Tahiri, the outgoing Deputy Prime Minister and Kosovo’s coordinator for the talks with Belgrade, told Radio Free Europe that, prior to the implementation of the agreement, parties should also sign an implementation plan, to pave the way for an official application to the International Telecommunication Union.
Tahiri said the application for Kosovo will be made by Austria, which volunteered to help Kosovo in this process.
She added that the implementation plan has been negotiated for a year but that some outstanding issues still remain.
