A group of migrants from the Middle East, mostly Iranian citizens, attempted to illegally cross the Serbian-Croatian border and enter the European Union on Catholic Christmas, the commissioner for refugees Vladimir Cucic said on the air of the Serbian RTS.

According to him, the attempt was “not serious”. The police of Serbia and Croatia worked professionally, the plan failed.

“We told them: do not sit in the fields in the mud and in the cold with the children, remove the children, return to the centers for refugees.” In the end, they did so,” he said.
