Croatian PM says not necessary to put up border fences for now

It was unnecessary at the moment to install the barriers on the border preventing a possible new migrant wave, Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic said on Saturday.

There were other ways to protect the border, he said, after neighboring Slovenia erected fences in two main border crossings with Croatia.

At the moment, Plenkovic said he did not see any reason to put up barriers, but Croatia would protect its border and police have been on alert along all the border.

Croatia would cooperate with neighboring countries on border protection mechanisms, he added.

The information showed currently the number of people moving along the Balkan route was 98 percent less, so there was no large influx of migrants, Plenkovic said.

Earlier, Slovenia has put up metal fence panels on border crossings at Bregana and Macelj sites bordering Croatia, according to Slovenia's interior ministry.
