Hungary has announced that it will build a fence on part of its border with Romania. The move comes as Budapest sealed its Serbian border in response to the refugee crisis sweeping across Europe.

Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said on Tuesday that Hungary would also build a razor-wire fence along a part of its border with Romania, alongside the one being built on the Serbian frontier.

“The government has decided to make preparations for the construction of a fence on the Hungary-Romania border, extending from the border triangle of Hungary, Serbia and Romania, for a reasonable distance,” Szijjarto told reporters at a press conference in the Hungarian capital Budapest.
