Stefanovic told reporters that 10 Hungarian policemen are taking part in the four patrols equipped with thermal vision cameras at Serbia's southern border, so as to block illegal migrants.

“We are working on reducing the number of illegal border crossings, and we will soon start the cooperation with German and Austrian police,” the Serbian minister said.

He specified that 20 German and 10 Austrian police officers with thermal vision equipment will soon come to the Serbian border, adding that talks on the cooperation with Bulgaria's police are ongoing.

“We will have a series of meetings so as to set up a joint patrol, and efficiently protect borders, but also ensure basic human rights for migrants,” Stefanovic said.
