He added that thanks to international cooperation, the checkpoint was reconstructed; that allowed increasing the number of jobs for improvement of passport control quality and speed up the entry-exit operations. This, in turn, cut down the queues at the checkpoints, improved the public safety level and reduce the duration of control procedures.
