The Novi Sad-based Dunav Grupa Agregati AD agreed under government mediation to pay the six back monthly wages it owed, Deputy Transportation Minister Pavle Galic said in a phone interview today in Belgrade. The river traffic returned to normal this morning, allowing a few hundred barges to pass, he said.
