Turkey gives Serbia devices to fight human smuggling

Turkey gave Serbia a high-tech edge against human smuggling.

Serbian border police received two carbon dioxide measuring devices from Turkey with a ceremony at the Batrovci border crossing between Serbia and Croatia.

Turkey’s Deputy Interior Minister Muhterem Ince and Dijana Hrkalovic, the state secretary of Serbia’s Interior Ministry, as well as Turkish Ambassador to Serbia Tanju Bilgic took part in the ceremony.

Ince said that the devices — which can detect hidden people being smuggled through carbon dioxide levels — will greatly help in the fight against human smuggling.

Hrkalovic said the devices will greatly reduce difficulties on the border.

Earlier, Ince met with Serbian Interior Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic during his visit to Serbia.

Both Ince and Stefanovic agreed that cooperation between the two countries would be strengthened in the fight against terrorism, organized crime, and illegal immigration.
