Following the passage of a large number of migrants and refugees across the border crossings of Bregana and Harmica, the situation on the Croatian-Slovenian border has normalized, and an extraordinary session of the Slovene parliament on refugee and migration issues has been postponed.
Instead of today, the parliamentary session on security aspects of the migrants' crisis and its consequences for Slovenia will be held on Wednesday, with which it agreed with the opposition calling for convocation. Parliament Speaker Milan Brglez said the debate would be held behind closed doors, and only the vote on the conclusions would be open to the public.
The session last week, following the entry into Slovenia of the first largest number of migrants from Hungary and Croatia, was requested by the Christian Democratic Party of Nova Slovenija (NSI) and the Slovenian Democratic Party (SDS) led by former Prime Minister Janez Jansa. Although Jansa is mainly the left-wing media in Slovenia known as "the Slovene Orbiter" who likes to advocate radical solutions, he is not expected to seek further military engagement in the current crisis, but to pledge additional support and guarantees to Brussels from its efforts to continue protects the Schengen border and controls the flows of migrants.
Slovenian police said that the situation at Bregani and Harmic this morning was normalized, but Slovenian authorities are still on the alert for the possible new arrival of a larger number of refugees. As Slovene media is conveying, Slovenia expects that Croatia will not impose a greater number of refugees and migrants on the Friday and Saturday, expecting that on the forthcoming days Bregan will be able to reach the highest number of 3000 those who want across Austria and Germany.
Slovenian Finance Minister Dušan Mramor said yesterday that the government from the budget reserve for this year has already secured 5,8 million for managing the migration crisis, and the media say that Brussels and some European countries are also expected.
As the Slovenian radio reported this morning, most of the refugees who came to Slovenia in the past had already crossed into Austria, which yesterday and during the night accepted migrants from Slovenia across the border crossing Šentilj, and refused to receive only a dozen.
The Slovenian Pollution Center in Brežice is currently completely vacant and ready to accept new refugees and migrants if needed.
Despite the partial normalization of crossings, railway traffic between Slovenia and Croatia has been suspended despite warnings from commercial and transportation companies that due to the suspension of road freight traffic due to the state of Bajakovo, there is a great economic damage.
