Slovenia will in the coming days install "temporary technical obstacles" on its border with Croatia in order to better manage the influx of migrants, Prime Minister Miro Cerar said Tuesday.
"We decided yesterday to start building over the following days on the Schengen border with Croatia some temporary technical obstacles. These obstacles, including fences if needed, will have the objective of directing migrants towards the border crossings. We are not closing our borders," Cerar told reporters in Ljubljana following in the influx of more 170,000 migrants since mid-October.
