Croatia will allow free passage of migrants across its territory, Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic said Wednesday as a first group entered the EU member state from Serbia since Hungary sealed its borders.
"They will be able to cross Croatia and we have been working intensively on that," Milanovic told lawmakers during a regular parliament session. "We are ready to accept and direct those people -- their religion and skin colour is completely irrelevant -- to where they apparently wish to go ... Germany, Scandinavia."
