European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker believes the refugee wave across the Balkan states towards Germany will continue and that some practical solutions will be found at a refugee crisis meeting he convened for Sunday in Brussels, a Slovenian daily reported on Thursday.
He told reporters in Madrid last night that he nearly cried every evening when he saw the long columns of refugees and that Sunday's meeting was a European-German-Slovenian initiative, the German Sueddeutche Zeitung said, as reported by Slovenia's Delo.
The meeting of Balkan and central European leaders will address practical issues such as aid to Slovenia in the form of tents, beds and blankets, Juncker reportedly said, adding that police units might be sent to Slovenia too.
Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic is also expected at the meeting, at which Serbia might explain "under which terms it would set up a buffer zone," Delo said.
