Frontex launches new operation in Montenegro

The European Border and Coast Guard Agency (Frontex) has launched another operation at the Montenegrin borders, in its bid to tackle cross-border crime at the country’s sea borders, after previously this year sending officers at the Croatian-Montenegrin border.

The move has been announced through a press release of Frontex, noting that the operation intends to tackle smuggling of drugs and weapons, smuggling of migrants, trafficking in human beings and terrorism.

According to the press release, the agency will provide aerial support to help Montenegro patrols at its sea borders, while at the same time deploying specialised officers from the EU Member States to the country.

Within the sea border control activities, the agency, in cooperation with EFCA and EMSA, will also provide technical and operational assistance in carrying coast guard functions in the international waters, including search and rescue support, fisheries control and environmental protection,” said in press release.
