He pointed out that in the Ground Safety Zone, there was “as many people as necessary” and added that the increase in the number of personnel was in connection with the fact that close to the border there was an armed conflict, and in such situations measure of precautions are undertaken.
Coordination Body, he said, has good cooperation with the local government.
“What happened is what happened in Kumanovo, I called the Mayor of Presevo Ragmi Mustafa, I asked him whether they are ready for everything, he told me they are preparing a session, we sent our representative, everything was agreed and everyone knows his role. In this policy does not interfere and everything flows normally,” said Stankovic.
