Serbia will set up joint teams consisting of police and army troops to protect its border as it "does not want to be a parking lot for Pakistanis and the Afghans unwanted in Europe", Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic said on Saturday after the office for coordinating the security services held an urgent meeting in the wake of the failed coup attempt in Turkey.
The decision on the mixed teams to guard the border should be now approved by President Tomislav Nikolic.
Vucic said that the mixed police and army tams should protect the border against illegal entries.
According to him, only those how seek asylum in Serbia can stay in centres for migrants,,
Currently, some 2,700 people from Asia were registered on Serbia's territory, and 85% are Afghans and Pakistanis, and only a few are Syrian refugees,.
