The Director of Customs in Kosovo, Agron Llugaliu, has stated that in the last two years there has been a decrease in smuggling in the northern part of the country, while adding that the rule of law in that part is efficiently extended. Llugaliu has also said that the security measure against Serbian goods established a year ago has had the effect of preventing the smuggling of weapons and other equipment from Serbia.

Director Agron Llugaliu in an interview for KosovaPress states that after the implementation of security measures by the government, there is a decrease in imports from Serbia by about 70 percent.

while adding that there is an increase in imports from Albania by about 25 percent compared to the same period last year.

In addition to the decrease in smuggling, Llugaliu says that other activities have also been carried out that have also involved the rest of the country.

Meanwhile, he says that there is a 70 percent reduction in the total import from Serbia.

Llugaliu says that the important thing in this regard is that the measure was efficient, showing that there was no infiltration or attempt to smuggle weapons and other equipment.

Regarding the import with Albania, Llugaliu says that there is an increase of 25 percent in the first four months of this year, compared to the same period last year.

The security measure to stop Serbian goods was taken on June 14 by the Government of Kosovo, the day when the three Kosovo police officers were kidnapped by Serbian forces inside the territory of Kosovo. Lately, the Government has decided to ease the security measures for raw material goods and semi-finished products.
