President says E.U. must act on migrants
Slovenia’s president said that if Sunday’s emergency European Union summit fails to produce an acceptable solution to the migrant crisis, the small Alpine nation will act on its own.
On Saturday, the state STA news agency quoted President Borut Pahor as saying “Slovenia cannot become a pocket in which refugees would be stuck if the Austrian and German borders close, because the country could not handle that.”
Pahor did not offer details of what he would do, but other Slovenian officials have suggested putting up a fence along the Croatian border.
Meanwhile, Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov said Saturday that his country, Serbia and Romania will not become “buffer zones” for the migrant crisis and will close their borders to refugees if Germany and Austria decide to close theirs.
