A new border crossing, Backi Vinogradi-Asott Halom, between Serbia and Hungary will be opened in the next two months, Serbia's state secretaries for the interior Vladimir Bozovic and Vanja Vukic agreed with Hungary's State Secretary Peter Siyarto on Friday.
The three agreed the new crossing should be opened because of the number of people and the quantity of merchandise going across the border, and that the capacity of the old Horgos-Roszke and three other crossings would be increased.
Vukic, Bozovic and Siyarto discussed also the possibility of opening another crossing, Bacsszentgyorgy-Rastina.
The two countries' relations are improving and the already good cooperation between their border police forces should be improved further, they said. The Serbian officials agreed with their Hungarian colleague it was in the interest of both countries to improve the efforts against cross-border crime and prevention of illegal migration.
