Serbia ‘protects’ itself, limits migrant flow

Economic migrants from Macedonia cannot enter Serbia because Croatia and Slovenia had announced earlier they would not accept them, Serbian minister in charge for the refugees and migrants said in Belgrade on November 19.

“We have to protect our country and therefore we have decided to take reciprocal measures,” Aleksandar Vulin (photo) explained. He warned that the problem should be resolved by all countries which are on the refugees route and that unilateral measures “may be harmful and could create problems”.

“We will not allow anyone who cannot continue the trip to enter Serbia. We are not the final destination country, they just pass through Serbia and it will remain so,” Vulin said.
