administrative challenge to be completed, having in mind that for its

political dimension, pointing out the good relations and trust of both
neighbours," Osmani stated, pointing out the other projects that are being
implemented in the direction of promoting mutual communication from both sides

remind you that for this border crossing we have previously built the road from
the village of Opae to Belanovce in a length of 16 kilometers; just two weeks
ago the highway "Arben Xhaferi" from Pristina to the border with
North Macedonia was opened; the construction of the section in North Macedonia
to Skopje will soon begin, so that the capitals of the two countries will be
distant only 40 km," Osmani underlined.
