Interior Minister Ranko Ostojić said on Saturday in Opatovac that the police control the Croatian border, that everything was under full control and during the night of receiving migrants in Baphnia he was slowed for several hours due to "reorganization of work and migration of migrants for a long time".
On Saturday, there was a 600 migrant in Bapku. At 600 camp in Opatovac there was a 10,25 train around 1800 hours from 8 migrants from Tovarnika road to Čakovec and Mursko Središća where train arrival is expected after 10 to 600 hours. In Cakovec, 1200 migrants will be disembarked from the train, half of which will be transferred to Macelj buses and others to the road border crossing of Mursko Središće. In Mursko Središće on the railway border crossing the train will transfer the remaining XNUMX migrants.
According to Ostojić's words, 188.700 migrants entered into Croatia until Saturday, which means that they went to the country on average about 6000 daily.
"Croatian police control the Croatian border, refugees are coming to a transition that was (before the entry into the EU into the EU) a cross-border transition, everything was fully controlled and organized," Ostojic added, adding that the Hungarian border was opened for all those who travel regularly and are closed only for "accepting migrants coming from camps in Greece and Turkey".
He repeatedly stressed that "this press conference would be much better to work in Greece, which is the Schengen area, where every migrant showed a document proving that he has become an asylum or being in a refugee camp and that relocation has been agreed with the European Union and at the time of its implementation of Croatia's part of the burden will be taken over by the 1640 people as agreed. "
He pointed out that all that happened and is happening is a purely humanitarian problem, ie moving people and emptying camps without any agreement.
"Regarding Plan C of the Croatian Government, it is not Plan C of the Slovenian Government because there was no Plan A or Plan B, but at the operational level it was agreed that the Slovenian side could accept migrants on these and those points, and Croatia would appreciate it "Ostojić emphasized, rejecting any combination of opening humanitarian corridors, which should have been decided by the EU. "The situation is the same as before the 31 day," Ostojić said, adding that the situation on the Greek-Turkish border has not yet been resolved.
Ostojic: The president can easily agree with Serbia on the arrival of refugees on official crossings
To the journalist's question to comment on the statements of President Kolinda Grabar Kitarović, so that all refugees should be redirected to official border crossings such as Tovarnik, Bajakova, Ostojić replied that "it can easily negotiate with his friends in Serbia".
"My call is to make arrangements with those who he or she talks in New York and the like, let's negotiate freely on the crossings and we will not have any problems," Ostojic said, concluding that Croatia would thus ease the job.
Asked by the Slovenian journalist whether it was strange that Hungary closed the border to Croatia after President Grabar-Kitarović was in Hungary, Minister Ostojić said that "a much bigger problem of military power, long pipes, a border warrior that can not be considered friendly act, so we continue to say that if anyone breaks the relationship then it is Hungary, while Croatia does not do such moves even in such a situation. "
Asked by Serbian journalists about the possibility of Croatia ceasing the inflow of refugees from Serbia, Minister Ostojić pointed out that "while the transit corridor functions, the inflow can be done, and the need to withdraw some other moves, about that." Ostojic emphasized that the best cooperation with Serbia was that Serbia would direct migrants to Horgos, so their journey is organized over Hungary because "at the end someone is responsible for this additional torture of people because they must enter the Republic of Croatia and then transit to Europe ".
He reiterated that the goal of migrants was not Hungary, nor Croatia nor Slovenia, and that all migrants who entered Hungary from Hungary and left.
"Croatia will not allow it to be a collection center or someone to bring us into the situation that we are the ones who should suffer for the disrespect of the Schengen in Greece and that will protect the Croatian national interests absolutely," Ostojić concluded.
The official unofficial information that 600 migrants during the day from Čakovec were supposed to be transported to the border crossing Goričan, that is to Hungary, was denied by the interim police in the afternoon. These are refugees who move to Slovenia. (Hina)
