Serbia expects arrival of nearly 7,000 refugees

BELGRADE, Oct. 11 (MNA) – Serbia expects the arrival of between 6,000 and 7,000 refugees from neighboring Macedonia, to place them in the new Admission center of the southern town of Bujanovac.

Apart from the aforementioned facility in southern Serbia there is the refugee reception camp of Presevo, where transited many of the 172,000 undocumented immigrants who crossed this nation in 2015 towards rich European countries like Germany and Sweden.

In Bujanovac, foreigners, mostly Syrians, Iraqis and Afghans are registered, subject to medical examination and receive food and feed, before being transferred by train or by bus to the border with Croatia, which borders with Hungary.

The Serbian authorities must reorient the movement of immigrants to Croatia, after last September 15 Budapest closed its southern border with this country, with the support of police and military.

From Germany, the government denied reports on the Suddeutsche Zeitung daily, under which this country and the European Commission negotiated a solidarity tax on oil prices and the Value Added Tax.

The money collected in this way supposedly would go to the EU coffers to provide financial assistance to countries like Spain, Italy, Greece and Bulgaria, where the majority of immigrants arrive.

For its part, the Dutch Prime Minister Mirk Rutte, had to call for calm and to respect public order, after residents of the town of Orange, in the province of Drenthe, protested the arrival of more foreigners to a shelter in that area.

In Greece, the government announced that for the coming month will be opened, several registration centers in the Greek cities of Lesbos, Kos and Leros, where they are recorded, identified and taken fingerprints foreigners who come to Europe.

At least half a million people arrived on European shores this year to escape poverty or armed conflicts in North Africa and the Middle East, highlights the local press.
