Bulgaria: Migrant Inflow Now Stopped, Serbia Says

Serbia’s Social Policy Minister Aleksandar Vulin has said that the inflow of irregular migrants into Serbia has been stopped.

"No one is crossing Serbia's borders,“ Tanjug quoted Vulin as telling local TV channel Pink when asked about the level of migration influx on Saturday.

"If the countries located behind us along this route or final destination countries do not want to receive migrants, then Serbia cannot let them pass through its territory,“ the Serbian news agency quoted Vulin as saying.

The Western Balkan route stretching from Greece via Macedonia and Serbia has been practically closed to migrants as of midnight Tuesday after Slovenia and Croatia announced that only people who have valid visas and passports will be allowed to enter their territory. Serbia has followed suit by announcing the introduction of reciprocal measures on its borders with Bulgaria and Macedonia.
