“If we cannot secure the outer border [of the EU] regardless of how costly or demanding that is, we will destroy the Schengen regime by ourselves,” Mr Orban said, referring to Europe’s free-travel area. He was speaking during a one-day visit to Slovenia.
“We do not have time until spring to find a solution. We need a solution within weeks . . . if not, we can expect conflicts between countries,” Mr Cerar said.
“The [migrant] situation is entirely out of control and has nothing to do with humanitarianism, integration and help.”
