Is Croatia The Answer For Refugees Stranded In Serbia?
For refugees stuck at the border between Hungary and Serbia, it looks like Croatia, and then Slovenia, may be an option to enter Europe.By Sebastian Martinez | September 16, 2015
Thousands of refugees in Serbia who are finding it increasingly hard to cross into Hungary may have a new alternative: Croatia.
Croatia isn't yet a part of the Schengen Area, which allows people to move through its European member countries without checks at the border or passport control. That means refugees might still face processing in Slovenia, which is a member.
But in contrast to the barbed-wire fences and tear gas they've faced at the Hungarian border, Croatia's prime minister says his country is "ready to accept these people, regardless of their religion and the color of their skin, and direct them to the destinations where they wish to go."
