Czech Republic to keep assisting Macedonia in guarding of its southern border


The Czech Republic will keep sending policemen to Macedonia to help the country to guard its border with Greece, First Deputy Interior Minister Jiri Novacek said after a meeting with Macedonian Interior Minister Oliver Spasovski.

The cooperation between the ministries of both countries has been intensified since the migrant crisis in 2015, Novacek said, pointing out that the Czech Republic has been granting expert assistance to Macedonia on various security matters. The Czech Republic, he added, highly appreciates Macedonia's efforts to join the international organization, in particular the European Border and Coast Guard Agency (Frontex), as well as the ones for meeting the EU membership standards.

Spasovski extended gratitude for the Czech support of Macedonia's EU-integration process, as well as for the assistance during the migrant crisis.

Spasovski and Novacek also reviewed the possibilities for advancing the bilateral cooperation.
