Interior Minister Sándor Pintér on Tuesday signed an agreement with his Macedonian counterpart on police cooperation between the two states.
“Without Macedonia’s efforts, it would be much harder for Hungary to protect its southern borders,” Pintér told a press conference.
He added that the agreement aimed at combatting organised crime while preventing illegal migration during the summer when the numbers of tourists and home-grown migrant workers increase.
Oliver Spasovski said cooperation between the two countries and their ministries was positive, and he thanked the Hungarian police force for helping to guard the Macedonian-Greek border.
He added cooperation with Hungary could be expanded into several areas. Macedonia, for instance, wants to make use of Hungary’s experience in the EU and NATO accession negotiations, he said.
