The two nations don't often cooperate; Croatia's declaration of independence sparked a bitter ethnic war, which caused over 100,000 deaths. But as the weather worsens, European nations have been under increasing pressure to step up their refugee aid.
The cooperation comes weeks after refugees have been waiting in freezing cold temperatures to walk from Serbia into Croatia.
