Migrants:Slovenia doesn't reintroduce control at Croatian border

Arrivals increased after Zagreb joined Schengen

20 September, 11:24

(ANSA) - LIUBLIJANA, 20 SET - Despite increased migration flows, Slovenia does not intend to reintroduce border controls at its border with Croatia. According to Undersecretary of State at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Marko Štucin, the government in Ljubljana is currently not considering introducing controls at the southern border despite the increase in illegal crossings.
    Štucin wants Croatia and other Western Balkan countries to do everything possible to curb immigration. After Zagreb joined Schengen at the beginning of this year, the number of migrants intercepted on Slovenian territory has risen sharply.
    Meanwhile, the conservative Slovenian Democratic Party (SDS), the main opposition force, is proposing the immediate convening of an emergency meeting of the National Security Council to address the migration issue within the broader framework of the country's security. (ANSA).
