Strikes block the checkpoints on border between the Republic of Macedonia and Kosovo11 September 2013
According to the Embassy of the Republic of Bulgaria in Skopje today the checkpoints between Macedonia and Kosovo have been blocked by a strike of Macedonian carriers and the crossing of people, vehicles and goods between the two countries is not possible. The strikes are caused by the emerging trade and customs restrictions between the two countries.
According to the Macedonian border police there is no information on when the strike will end and the normal border crossing will be restored.
MFA recommends that the Bulgarian citizens who are planning to travel between the two countries to seek bypass routes through neighboring countries.
