Macedonia has completely closed its door to migrants soon after Slovenia, Croatia and Serbia decided to prohibit migrants from entering the country.
Macedonia has been permitting Syrian and Iraqi refugees to enter, but after its neighboring country tightened their course of action, Macedonia too followed it.
“From midnight, there will be no more migration on the Western Balkan route as it took place so far,” said Vesna Gyorkos Znidar, the interior minister of Slovenia.
“Serbia cannot allow itself to become a collective centre for refugees, so it will harmonize all its measures with those of the EU member states,” said Serbia’s Interior Ministry.
Thousands of refugees are stranded in camps at the Macedonia – Greece border.
