Central European and Balkan countries unite to tackle migration
Defense officials of Austria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia and Slovenia have pledged close cooperation in tackling migration with all possible means, including use of armed forces.
Six Central European and Balkan countries have created a grouping called the Central European Defense Cooperation.
Among the group’s goals is that all migrants who want to apply for asylum in EU countries have to do it in centers outside the bloc.
Austrian Defense Minister Hans Peter Doskozil said after a meeting in Prague on Monday that his country has been preparing a detailed action plan of cooperation.
