Hungary to stop refugees with new fences

Asian Journal - - Asia -

Bu­dapest: The Hun­gar­ian gov­ern­ment is set to build more bor­der fences in an at­tempt to stop the flow of refugees. A de­cree pub­lished and signed by Prime Min­is­ter Vik­tor Or­ban asked the in­te­rior and de­fence min­is­ters to pre­pare for con­struc­tion of the new fences, with­out spec­i­fy­ing the ex­act lo­ca­tion, Efe news agency re­ported. The de­cree also or­dered six bor­der prov­inces, in which a “state of cri­sis due to a mas­sive immigration” is de­clared, to pre­pare for the “tem­po­rary clo­sure of the bor­der”. Hungary has al­ready built a fence on the Ser­bian bor­der to pre­vent refugees from en­ter­ing the coun­try.
