Summary

On 23 January, with support of the Mission to Skopje, the Common Contact Centre at the Blace crossing point was officially inaugurated. The centre was established to assist in the fight against transnational organized crime and to strengthen existing cross-border co-operation between host country and Kosovo border police authorities.

In April 2014 the Mission to Skopje provided technical equipment as well as training for 16 police officers, who are currently employed at the centre. Similar facilities were opened with the support of the Mission to Skopje at the Tabanovce and Pelince border crossing points in 2013.
