MINSK, 3 December (BelTA) - Belarus and the Republic of Korea intend to take joint efforts to combat customs offences and agreed on the need to provide prompt information to stop trafficking of drugs, psychotropic substances and weapons and illegal movement of cultural, historical and intellectual property items. These matters were discussed during a meeting between Chairman of the Belarusian State Customs Committee Yuri Senko and Commissioner of the Korea Customs Service (KCS) Kim Yung-moon, BelTA learned from the SCC.

The heads of the customs services discussed the promising areas of cooperation in customs affairs. Consideration was given to the need to finalize, at the national levels, the draft agreement between the two governments on cooperation and mutual assistance in customs affairs. The document is expected to be approved in early 2020.

The parties also examined the activities of Authorized Economic Operators (AEOs) and the nature of the measures needed to facilitate the movement of goods and vehicles. The heads of the customs agencies supported the initiative to sign an agreement on mutual recognition of the AEO status.

The parties agreed to hold practical training seminars to build up the capacities of the customs services.
