"Danas sam veoma srećan i ponosan što smo potpisali Memorandum o razumevanju u borbi protiv korona virusa. Važno je zato što ćemo zajednički da preduzimamo mere i što smo doneli odluku da naši ekspertski i medicinski timovi razgovaraju i sarađuju, time stvaramo dodatnu bliskost, poverenje i možemo na najkonkretniji način da pomognemo našim ljudima. Od presudnog je značaja da pokažemo koliko brinemo o njihovom zdravlju i koliko nam je stalo da na najbolji način prođemo kroz tešku krizu i da se zajednički borimo. Takođe važno je da nastavimo da jačamo našu trgovinsku razmenu, da je unapređujemo, kao i svaku drugu vrstu saradnje. Verujem da dodatnim uprošćavanjem procedura, olakšavanjem protoka roba, kapitala, ljudi i usluga možemo da učinimo mnogo. Sada kada smo i formalno rešili sve prepreke građani mogu da odu na teritoriju Severne Makedonije, ali i Albanije samo sa ličnom kartom i obrnuto. U Srbiji ćemo da napravimo poseban tim koji će se baviti samo ovim pitanjem. Ovo je od ogromnog interesa i želim da čestitam svim našim građanima. Približiće naše zemlje politički, ali pre svega ovo će doneti bolji život običnim ljudima i srećan sam što mogu da kažem da ovo produbljuje poverenje i dobre odnose između Tirane, Skoplja i Beograda. Napravili smo više nego dobar početak, ali moramo da radimo marljivo, više nego ikada i uspećemo da napravimo još veći uspeh." - Predsednik Republike Srbije Aleksandar Vučić učestvovao je putem video-linka na konferenciji Mali Šengen. Na konferenciji, pored predsednika Vučića, učestvovali su i predsednik Vlade Republike Albanije @ediramaal i predsednik Vlade Republike Severne Makedonije @zoranzaev. Sastanku su prisustvovali i predsednica Vlade Republike Srbije @anabrnabic i ministar zdravlja Zlatibor Lončar.

“We have formally resolved all obstacles for our citizens to be able to enter North Macedonia and Albania with ID cards alone and vice versa,” he said, adding that this would bring the three countries closer politically and deepen the trust and good relations between Tirana, Skoplje and Belgrade.  

The Prime Ministers of Albania and North Macedonia, Edi Rama and Zoran Zaev welcomed the fact that Kosovo was joining the Mini-Schengen initiative and expressed the hope that Montenegro and Bosnia-Herzegovina would do the same.

The online summit was organized as part of the mini-Schengen initiative and was attended by Vucic, Prime Minister Ana Brnabic and Health Minister Zlatibor Loncar in Belgrade, Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama in Tirana and North Macedonia Prime Minister Zoran Zaev in Skoplje.
