(ANSA) - BELGRADE, 24 LUG -"The stability of the Balkans is a European security issue," Chief Security Advisor to the Hungarian Prime Minister György Bakondi said on Hungarian Tv on Monday evening, a government statement informed today. Bakondi stressed that a 'corridor' used by refugees and migrants leading to Austria and Italy has developed via Albania, Montenegro, Bosnia-Hercegovina and Slovenia and that the situation is causing tensions in several countries along the route. According to Bakondi, the higher numbers of migrants reported along the so-called 'Bosnian route' indicates that preparations for handing the migration issues are "far from optimal" in certain countries. Bakondi also noted that Romania has not become a main route for migration crossing the Balkan peninsula and that Hungary's border security measures are "acting as a deterrent." (ANSA).
