Hungary sends police to patrol Macedonian-Greek border


Hungary on Monday sent off 31 police officers to take up patrol duties on the Macedonian-Greek border for a one-month period.

The officers were sent off by Janos Balogh, commander of Hungary’s operational police force.

Hungary’s police officers will be tasked with managing the entry of thousands of migrants that arrive in Macedonia on a daily basis. They will contribute transport vehicles and thermographic cameras to the mission, Balogh said.

Hungary and Macedonia’s prime ministers Viktor Orban and Nikola Gruevski agreed in December that Hungary would contribute to Macedonia’s border protection efforts.
