Greece, former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Serbia - Refugee crisis
  • On 23 August, authorities in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia opened its southern border with Greece allowing the crossing of 5 000 refugees and migrants. Long queues formed as local authorities processed their papers to legalise their transit north and transport was organized to take them to the border with Serbia. In Presevo, on the Serbian side, the Ministry of the Interior registered 2 000 persons at the reception centre during the weekend.
  • Currently the backlog of refugees waiting at the Greek and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia border has reduced considerably.
