BELGRADE – Serbia will not be a parking lot for migrants – it will not, and cannot, take in hundreds of thousands of those people, but it is ready to participate in the quota system, even though, unlike EU member states, it is under no obligation to do so, Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic said Wednesday.
Commenting on unofficial information that a part of the money to be allocated at the upcoming London conference will be used to keep a portion of the migrants in Serbia, he said that “we have never seen that money, that is a lot of money for our country, and if someone were to give us that many millions of euros, it would mean that hundreds of thousands of migrants would remain in Serbia.”
“That is not possible. Serbia is not, and cannot be, a parking lot for anyone,” Vucic said.
“We do not need money, we can take in a number of people, but Serbia cannot sustain hundreds of thousands of people,” Vucic said.
