Giving Operation Nelegal the status of a permanently operating CSTO operation will increase the flexibility and efficiency of the activities undertaken. It will be possible to carry out the operation in certain areas and coordinate it with the operational and preventive measures implemented at the national level to counteract illegal migration.
