Summary

On 19 November, in co-operation with the OSCE Presence in Albania, the Mission facilitated a central level cross border co-operation meeting in Shkodra to assess the work of the Montenegrin and Albanian joint border patrols. During the meeting, it was noted that progress had been made in terms of more intensified co-operation at the operational level, which resulted in further seizures of illegal narcotics and suppressing of illegal fishing activities. Nevertheless, it was also agreed that more efforts were needed in developing the Border Surveillance Protocol and adoption of hot pursuit protocols.
