It will certainly improve the road network in BiH, and the Republic of Serbia, connect the capitals of Sarajevo and Belgrade, and, ultimately, achieve a better regional connection with the Republic of Turkey, ” Mitrovic pointed out.
The Agreement on mutual recognition and exchange of driving licenses was also signed by Mitrovic, who said that the main reason for its conclusion was the desire to enable citizens of one state who have a driver’s license to apply for issuing a replacement driver’s license during their legal stay in the territory of another state. It would be done in a way that they wouldn’t have to take the theoretical and practical part of the driving test.
