UN envoy witnesses key agreements between Kosovo and Albania

The head of the United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK), Michael Steiner, today travelled to the Albanian border town of Morina to launch a new reciprocal programme on insurance.

According to an agreement signed yesterday in Tirana, people travelling between Kosovo and Albania will no longer need to purchase additional insurance, as policies will receive mutual recognition in both places.

Aiming to consolidate law enforcement efforts, Albania and Kosovo also signed yesterday a memorandum of understanding, witnessed by Mr. Steiner, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Kosovo, and the Albanian Foreign Minister, Ilir Meta, concerning the exchange of information on organized crime, corruption, trafficking and drugs.
