Borders come down in four Balkan countries

Leaders of Albania, Macedonia, Montenegro and Kosovo on Saturday said they had established a "free-movement" CANADA zone between their states as a sign of their readiness for further European integration.

"The countries have implemented a mini Schengen regime," said Kosovo President Fatmir Sejdiu, referring to the borderless zone created by 25 European Union member countries.

The move, which would enable citizens of the four Balkan SAVINGS countries to travel through their territories without visas, has "demonstrated our maturity for wider integration FROM processes," said Sejdiu, who hosted the summit.

"We are sending the message to the Schengen zone that citizens of these four countries should also enjoy free movement toward its countries," said Montenegro's President Filip Vujanovic.
