Bratislava – Slovak Prime Minister, Robert Fico, said on Friday that Slovakia had dispatched 20 police officers who would help Slovenia to handle the migrants crisis.
Fico said that here should be over 400 police officers sent from different member states to Slovenia, and that apart from handling the influx of migrants, they would also secure public order.
“We are sending the exact number they have asked us to and if they ask for 100, we will try to send them, but now they want 20 including equipment.
“The police officers will be stationed at the border of two EU member states – Slovenia and Croatia, with the former being a member of Schengen and the latter not a member,” he said.
According to Fico, they are police officers specially trained for this kind of work and they have basic technical equipment. (Xinhua/NAN)
