BELGRADE – There are 4,000 migrants in Serbia at the moment and that number should not exceed 6,000 during the winter, said on Monday assistant of the commissioner for refugees and migration Danijela Popovic Roko.

She pointed out that the work on the expansion of existing facilities at reception centres with the aim to ensure enough room for the winter, when the higher number of migrants is expected, is taking place.

New facilities at the reception centre in Krnjaca will be opened on Monday, said Popovic Roko and added that there are plans to expand capacities of the other four centres.

She told the RTS that Serbia faced the migrant crisis with five asylum centres last year and recalled that the transit reception centres were opened meanwhile.
