BELGRADE – The EU-Turkey deal is not working to a scope it has been agreed on both sides, Serbian Minister of Social Policy Aleksandar Vulin voiced concern on Tuesday.

“The agreement is being implemented, but I am concerned over Turkey’s announcements that the agreement will be suspended, or that both sides have not met the obligations,” Vulin told reporters in Belgrade, replying to the question concerning its repercussions for Serbia.

As far as migrants are concerned, Serbia fulfills its obligations under international and national law, he said.

“All migrants in our territory are offered assistance and have the right to use reception centers. We cannot either open or close borders, but we will behave in the same way as we have done so far,” Vulin said.
