Tasevski said that Tuesday’s today clearly demonstrates the excellent relations between “the two police forces of our states and the readiness to continue our bilateral cooperation on operational issues.”

This climate of cooperation is a key element for guaranteeing public order and security in both our countries and also motivates us to work together, even more, on issues such as the fight against organized and cross-border crime, which are common priorities. In the future, our cooperation will intensify in the direction of joint operational and investigative actions, on international issues such as terrorism, the fight against organized crime and money laundering.
