English term or phrase: green and blue borders
In the context of national security policy, in particular border security.

"... between the border crossing points at green and blue borders. ..."

I guess they are a kind of "buffer zones" between two countries.

Thank you.

Thank you, dosanko-san. Yes, it makes sense. Actually, there is another term "land border" already in the same document, so I overinterpreted these words.
Thank you !!
