The crossing of Dheu i Bardhë-Bela Zemlja between Kosovo and Serbia has initiated, since 1 January, 2013, the implementation of an Integrated Border Management, commonly called an IBM.
Kosovo and Serbia have agreed to begin implementation of the IBM, which is the European model of cooperation between states to increase security and control on shared borders and counter smuggling, human trafficking and other illegal activities. There are illegal parallel structures creating alternative means of smuggling. This agreement establishes order and the rule of law on the border. This step will contribute to normalization, peace and stability.
Before the agreement regarding the control of Kosovo-Serbia border, there were seven other agreements between the two sides which were not implemented properly.
