"One of the goals of our ministry is to remove administrative barriers, and in this sense, this agreement regulates the relations in the field of international road transport in a modern way to facilitate the flow of goods and passengers," Nurkovic said.

He stressed that "The Ministry of Transport and Maritime Affairs of Montenegro is conducting a freight transport liberalization policy with all partner countries that have a similar policy in international road transport, so that with the Republic of Kosovo an agreement has been reached to carry freight in bilateral and transit transport without permissions ". After a working meeting, Nurkovic pointed out that we are on the right path to strengthen our cooperation, and today's meeting is an opportunity to agree on the next concrete steps.
