The decision to close the Croatian-Hungarian border could be made early this afternoon, after the planned meeting of the national security cabinet, Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán told journalists earlier today following a summit in Brussels, Hungarian online daily origo.hu reported.

The prime minister said he would be back in Hungary by noon and would convene the national security cabinet to discuss the issue early this afternoon.

Orbán said that conditions are ready on the Croatian border to establish the same quality protection as on the Serbian border. He said that an announcement issued by the V4 countries ensured that all V4 partners take serious responsibility and will offer help to Hungary in protecting its borders.

Cabinet Chief János Lázár said yesterday at his weekly press conference that Hungary was ready to close the border, which could happen before November 8, the day on which Croatiaʼs general election takes place.
