Flyktningkrisen skaper unntakstilstand i Makedonia

Makedonia erklærer unntakstilstand langs grensen til Hellas på grunn av den store mengden migranter som tar seg til landet.

Skopje (NTB-AFP-Reuters): – På grunn av økt press på den sørlige grensen regner vi med et økt behov for større og mer effektiv kontroll i området. Det er meldt om ulovlig innvandring i stor skala fra Hellas, sier en talsperson for regjeringen.

Ved å erklære unntakstilstand kan regjeringen sette inn militære styrker i området.

– Dette vil trolig føre til økt sikkerhet for befolkningen og en mer omfattende tilnærming til dem som ønsker å søke asyl, sier Ivo Kotevski ved det makedonske innenriksdepartementet.

Bare forrige uke ankom 20.843 migranter Hellas, de fleste av dem fra Syria, Afghanistan og Irak, ifølge FNs høykommissær for flyktninger (UNHCR). (©NTB)
