Slovenian Prime Minister Robert Golub said that Italy, Croatia and Slovenia will apply for trilateral cooperation to control illegal immigration.
Golub, who met Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenković, stated that Croatia’s Schengen membership facilitated the departure of Slovenes into the country and said, “We understood that we made the right decision by supporting Croatia’s membership.” He said.
Noting that the number of migrants entering Slovenia illegally has increased, Golub said the EU’s external borders should be better controlled.
Golub stressed that Slovenia and Croatia are two countries used by illegal immigrants only as a means of transit, “We will form tripartite cooperation with Italy, which is the last stop for immigrants, in order to control illegal immigration.” He said.
Gollob indicated that the aforementioned cooperation may begin until May at the latest.
Noting that his country faces the difficult task of protecting the EU’s external borders, Croatian Prime Minister Plenković said, “Croatia has made significant investments in border security. Our borders are guarded by 6,700 police.” Use phrases.
On the other hand, Croatian Interior Minister Davor Bozinovic noted that the number of migrants who entered the EU illegally reached the level of 2015-2016.
Emphasizing that migrants generally come from the Middle East and North Africa, Bozinovic said, “One of the most important reasons for the increase in illegal immigration is Russia’s attack on Ukraine. The attack in question has destabilized the economic system in the world, pushed many people below the poverty line, and caused Food-poor regions face bigger problems.” He said.
Bozinovic added that the earthquakes that hit Türkiye and Syria also caused an increase in the number of migrants.
