Serbia, Montenegro sign cross-border agreements

Deputy PM and Interior Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic spoke on 01.08.2018 in Belgrade with Montenegrin Minister of the Interior Mevludin Nuhodzic.

According to the Serbian government, they discussed cooperation between the police of two countries in the fight against organized crime.

After the meeting, the ministers signed seven agreements and two protocols on cross-border transportation and border control. 

The interlocutors pointed out that the police of the two countries, with even more intense cooperation, want to send a clear message to criminals - that they will fight against them even stronger and that they will stand in the way of organized criminal groups. 

Stefanovic underlined that the agreements on cross-border transpiration and border control, which are signed today, will contribute to improving the efficiency of the work of the border police of the two countries. 

When it comes to irregular migration, he assessed that this is not an issue that affects only Serbia, and that a unique response to this problem must be found at the level of whole Europe. 

Nuhodzic stressed that the cooperation between the ministries of the interior of Montenegro and Serbia is intensive in all matters that are important for the two countries, primarily in the field of combating organized crime and illegal migration.
