Hungary to decide on Croatian border seal-off on Friday - PM Orban

BUDAPEST (Reuters) - Hungary will make a decision on Friday on a possible closure of its border with Croatia to stem the flow of migrants, Prime Minister Viktor Orban said in Brussels, public television M1 reported.

Orban said he would call a meeting of the national security cabinet early afternoon which would discuss the situation and “make the necessary decisions.”

Orban’s government has already built a steel fence to shut down the migrant route over Hungary’s southern border with Serbia. Hungary also has in place a border fence along its frontier with Croatia, and Orban said on Thursday that the border could be sealed off “within an hour if necessary”.
