Slovenia's Interior Ministry on Tuesday denied reports that countries along the Balkan route for west Europe-bound migrants had agreed on organising the direct transportation by train for refugees from Macedonia to Austria and refuted allegations about plans to shut down current centres for accommodation of refugees in transit in Slovenia.
"Slovenian police have rejected claims by Croatian Police Commissioner Vlado Dominic that the countries on the Balkan migration route had agreed on direct train transports of refugees from Macedonia to Austria," the Slovenian news agency STA reported today.
Croatia's Dominic said today that at the last meeting of police directors in Skopje it had been agreed that migrants would be transported jointly from Macedonia to the border with Austria.
On the other hand, the Slovenian ministry claims that that meeting expressed support to the efficient control of the Macedonia-Greece border and also assistance was promised to this end.
