Prime Minister Joseph Muscat and energy minister Konrad Mizzi will travel to Serbia today for official talks with Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vučić. While there, he will also watch the Malta national waterpolo team’s opening game against France at the European Waterpolo Championship.

It will be Malta’s first ever game at a European waterpolo championship after Kurt Izzo’s team historically qualified for the competition last year.

Opposition whip David Agius had earlier criticised the government for finding enough money to send Muscat to watch the game, but not for PBS to purchase the TV rights to broadcast Malta’s matches live from Belgrade.

Muscat’s duties will then take him to neighbouring Montenegro, where he will hold official talks with President Filip Vujanović and Prime Minister Milo Đukanović.

The government said that the leaders will sign a memorandum of understanding on “joint economic and technical cooperation” between Malta and Montenegro.   

While in Montenegro, Muscat and Mizzi will also visit the site where Enemalta and Shanghai Electric Power will construct a wind farm.
