Serbia’s President Aleksandar Vucic and Prime Minister Ana Brnabic discussed with Albanian and North Macedonian prime ministers Edi Rama and Zoran Zaev the economic links among their countries and the possibility of the so-called mini Schengen regime, local news agencies reported late on Wednesday.
According to the Vojvodina public broadcaster RTV, Rama and Zaev will take part in the trilateral meeting on Thursday initiated by Vucic with the visa-free regime among the regional countries, like the European Schengen regime, dominating the talks.
The police detained two activists of the nationalist Democratic Party of Serbia (DSS) and confiscated a banner reading ‘Edi Rama Persona non Grata’. The men wanted to stage performance outside the venue of the meeting of Vucic, Rama and Zaev, protesting Rama’s presence.
The meeting will be held in Serbia northern city of Novi Sad.
The idea aims at improving the links of the regional markets, removing the barriers in business and enabling free flow of goods, people, services and capital in the market of 20 million people.
