European power grid lobby ENTSO-E warned on Monday it could suspend Serbia unless it quickly resolves a dispute with its former province Kosovo which has again made some digital clocks on the continent run slow.

The European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E), which groups grid operators from 26 countries, said that digital clocks across Europe that use mains frequency to keep time, such as those on microwaves and clock radios, have fallen behind by one minute due to a drop in frequency on continental Europe’s transmission network.

Earlier this year, a power shortfall in Kosovo which Serbian grid operator EMS failed to compensate for, slowed those clocks by as much as six minutes.
