|BELGRADE -- Serbian Interior Minister Ivica Dačić and his Spanish counterpart Perez Rubalcaba signed in Madrid an agreement on police cooperation in order to combat crime.|
"Drug trafficking is realized over Western European countries, including Spain, and that was the reason for a number of joint actions of the Serbian and Spanish police in the past period," Dačić said.
He announced signing of an agreement on emergency situations, adding that Serbia will find this type of cooperation very useful given that Spain has one of the best-developed emergency coordination centers.
Dačić also announced an agreement on assistance in training of Serb policemen for the UN and EU peacekeeping missions.
The ministers stated that the political relations between Serbia and Spain are on the rise, but added that there is still much space for promotion of economic cooperation, the statement reads.
