The head of the technical delegation on issues concerning border insurance, Rrahim Pacolli, has decided to freeze as of this midnight the agreement for the mutual recognition of border insurance policies between Kosovo and Serbia.

Pacolli took this decision based on article 9 of the statute of the Kosovo Insurance Bureau, stressing that the agreement reached on June 23 in Brussels is not being implemented in a mutual way by the Serb side.

“Besides the different difficulties that citizens of Kosovo are facing, they are also obliged to pay extra charges for registration plates when entering the Serb territory. In spite of the numerous complaints that we have made, nothing has been done for the full implementation of the agreement, therefore we decided to freeze the agreement until further notice”, he said.

On September 1, Pacolli visited the border crossing point in Merdar where he asked Serbs to allow the passage of cars with Kosovo license plates, otherwise, the agreement would be frozen. /ibna/
