Could the transit borders at Neum be closed? CROPIX

Could the transit borders at Neum be closed?

By  Jun 28, 2020

Deputy Chairman of the Council of Ministers of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Minister of Foreign Affairs of Bosnia and Herzegovina, dr. Bisera Turković, gave a statement to Dnevni Avaz regarding the information that passengers from Bosnia and Herzegovina were prevented from crossing the Republic of Croatia to Neum at the Doljani border crossing on June 28, 2020.

“Considering the information and the fact that citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina are prevented from even transit through Croatia, it is indisputable that the ministry I am heading will propose reciprocity tomorrow,” she said. “And this will be done as soon as possible because Croatia has a much larger number of newly infected Covid-19 cases and significantly less testing,” she added.

“I do not know why Croatia decided on such measures, but we know our positive attitude towards all countries in the region when it comes to tourism, business travel and trade opportunities in times that were unknown to us until yesterday, and that is the time of the pandemic,” was announced the office of Bisera Turković.

If this comes to pass, then that would mean that the transit borders at Neum would be closed meaning that the Dubrovnik – Neretva County would be cut off from the rest of Croatia to some extent.
