Minister: Number of immigrants up in Serbia
The number of migrants passing through Serbia has increased significantly since the beginning of the year and over 34,000 people have expressed the intent to request asylum in Serbia, Serbian Interior Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic said at a meeting of Serbian, German, Austrian, Hungarian and Bulgarian police officials on Friday.
At a meeting on solving the problem of irregular migration, Stefanovic noted that most of those people have not requested asylum because, to them, Serbia is a transit country on their way to Germany, France, as well as Sweden and other Scandinavian countries, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement.
He asked his German, Austrian, Hungarian and Bulgarian colleagues for help and support in the form of technical equipment – thermal vision cameras, vehicles and sensors – as well as staff capable of providing assistance in registration and control of irregular migrants, inSerbia.info reported.
