Austria to support Hungary’s fight against migration

Austria will send 21 police officers and two police dogs to serve on the Hungary-Serbia border.

Austria has announced that it will send 21 police officers and two police dogs to serve on the Hungary-Serbia border in support of Hungary’s fight against migration.

Interior Ministers Sándor Pintér of Hungary and Karl Nehammer of Austria agreed the move in Nickelsdorf near the Hungarian-Austrian border on Monday.

According to MTI, Nehammer said Austria will also support Greece and the countries on the Balkan route of migration. Austrian forces also served at Hungary’s southern border during the migration crisis in 2015.

Nehammer said a migration crisis like the one in 2015 “must be avoided”, adding that the Austrian authorities are much better prepared than they were then.
