- Hungary Matters
With the Hungarian border closed, migrants aiming to reach the EU eventually turned to the route through Albania, Montenegro, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia and Slovenia. Croatia and Slovenia’s strict border controls coupled with slow government decisionmaking in Bosnia-Herzegovina and understaffed law enforcement are creating a “virtually untenable” situation in the western Balkan country, György Bakondi said.
European aid is needed to handle the situation. Hungary is doing “everything in its power” to help, because stability in the Balkan region also has an impact on Europe’s stability in the long run, Bakondi said.
