“The Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs and his Slovenian counterpart have voiced concerns with respect to the fact that the Croatian immigrant care system has collapsed within a single day and Croatia is sending immigrants on to Slovenia and Hungary instead of providing them with care and accommodation”, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade told Hungarian news agency MTI on Friday morning.

Péter Szijjártó and Karl Erjavec discussed the migration situation by telephone, the statement said. The two politicians agreed on the importance of protecting Schengen Area borders.

Bilateral talks will continue following a meeting of the Slovenian Homeland Security Council on Friday afternoon, the Ministry told the press.
