Interior Minister Bledi Çuçi asked the deputies to vote on the amendment that includes the agreement signed with North Macedonia regarding the customs control checkpoints.
The Minister said that in the six border checkpoints that connect us with our neighbor, there will be only one checkpoint and this also serves the joint efforts of the two countries to the EU and the initiative for the Open Balkans.
"There will be only one control counter. There are 6 points where this agreement will be implemented. The agreement is based on other models that we have with other countries that we have prepared in consultation with the PAMEKA mission in our country.
The main objectives are to facilitate the movement of citizens and goods, increase cooperation in meeting common security interests and the rapid exchange of information, strengthen the professional capacity of border police officers and control the quality of law enforcement on border control.
"I believe that everyone is clear that this agreement also aims to strengthen ties with our neighbor and we believe that this serves our joint efforts for the EU and the initiative for the Open Balkans", said Çuçi.
