Earlier this week, Slovakia's government approved keeping temporary controls on its border with Hungary until December 23.
According to a report by news wire Reuters, the Slovakian government seeks to prevent a renewed spike in illegal migration.
Hungary's neighbor installed the border controls on October 5, following the decisions of Poland, the Czech Republic, and Austria to tighten their own frontiers with Slovakia.
Slovakia saw a more than 500% year-on-year increase in the number of illegal migrants detained between the start of 2023 and November 12, according to a statement accompanying the measure approved by the country's government.
