BELGRADE – Between 1,500 and 1,700 migrants are currently moving from Presevo to Sid, and their number is expected to reach last year’s levels with better weather conditions, Serbia’s social policy minister Aleksandar Vulin said on Wednesday.

Vulin told RTS that after the Amsterdam meeting of representatives of the countries situated along the Western Balkans route for migrants he expected that the same rules would apply from Greece to the final destination countries for their movement, registration and all other things.

“To enter Serbia from Macedonia, you have to be a citizen of Syria, Iraq or Afghanistan and express your intent to seek asylum in Austria or Germany. These are the rules that apply from Greece to Berlin,” Vulin said, noting that the rules had been harmonized, and there should be no unilateral moves.
