Belgrade – Slovenian Prime Minister, Miro Cerar said on Tuesday that Slovenia will start building a fence along the border with Croatia to manage the inflow of migrants.
Cerar said that the government decided on these technical measures, including a wire fence, as the European Union attempts to control the wave of migrants in Greece were not working.
“The border will remain open, but supervised,” Cerar said.[pro_ad_display_adzone id=”70560″]
Slovenian officials have said a fence could be used to direct the refugee flow, not close the 670-kilometer (400 mile) border as was the case in Hungary.
Cerar has said previously that his small Alpine nation was being overwhelmed by the flow of refugees.
Nearly 170,000 migrants crossed Slovenia since mid-October when Hungary closed its border with Croatia and the flow was redirected to Slovenia. (dpa/NAN)
