Croatia says it is unable to cope with the flow of migrants entering the country, and won’t register any more asylum-seekers.
Croatian PM to #refugees: You can pass through Croatia. Go on through. Not because we don't like you but because your destination is north.— Vlada R. Hrvatske (@VladaRH) September 18, 2015
The tweets are from the government’s official Twitter account.
Earlier Friday, Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic said: “Croatia cannot and will not accept this burden anymore.”
This week Croatia promised free passage to migrants after neighboring Hungary closed its borders to the asylum-seekers. But that move has resulted in as many as 14,000 people entering the country of 4.2 million people. Most of them are trying to reach Germany, which expects 800,000 asylum-seekers to enter the country this year.
“Croatia’s plan B is to no longer register and accommodate migrants,” the prime minister said.
