“From now on, based on a decision of the Austrian government delivered to us by the Slovenian and the Croatian governments, migrants will not be able to continue their movement if they have not expressed an intention to seek asylum in Austria or Germany,” Vulin told reporters during a visit he paid to a temporary migrant reception center in Adasevci, northwestern Serbia.

Vulin, who is the chairman of the working group on mixed migration flows, said that migrants planning to seek asylum in other countries would not be allowed to cross into Croatia, Slovenia, Austria, and Germany, which prompted the Serbian government to reach for a similar measure.
