Department of Homeland Security Acting Secretary Kevin K. McAleenan met with Serbia’s Deputy Prime Minister, Nebojša Stefanović, at the Department of Homeland Security’s St. Elizabeths campus Tuesday. The two discussed areas of mutual cooperation and signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to identify and prevent terrorist travel and reduce illegal migration.
Following the signing of this MOU, the Serbians will implement a Secure Real Time Platform (SRTP) to establish the exchange of information with DHS to help identify individuals who pose a threat of terrorism and criminal activity. DHS has offered SRTP to select foreign governments as a way to help increase border and immigration security. This MOU speaks to the partnership and cooperation between the U.S. and Serbia, and to the efforts of DHS to increase security across the globe.
