TALLINN 's The government has endorsed a cross-border agreement with Latvia on crime-fighting.
The agreement aims to strengthen efforts between the two countries in the fight against crime and to help implement the Schengen treaty of 1995, as well as the Schengen convention of 1990, on gradually opening member countries' borders.
The agreement also aims to prevent dangerous situations that could arise as a result of free borders.
Estonia and Latvia will exchange their information and experience, while organizing border safety activities such as anti-terrorist operations.
