Bosnia ready for possible new migrants route
Bosnia’s foreign minister says his country has made preparations to deal with an influx of migrants trying to make their way to northern Europe in case the main Balkan route shifts further south.
Igor Crnadak says an “entirely new route” could open for migrants trying to reach European Union member Croatia through Albania, Montenegro and Bosnia after the main, more northerly Balkan route has effectively been closed.
Crnadak said after talks with his Cypriot counterpart Monday that Bosnia can help a “certain number” of migrants pass through the country, but “we’re not in a position to even discuss letting some of them stay.”
He said Bosnian authorities could close the country’s borders, but this hasn’t been discussed yet.
