Czech police to assist Slovenia with border security

The Czech Republic is sending several dozen police officers to assist Slovenia in curbing illegal migration on that country’s border with Croatia, Interior Minister Jan Hamáček (Social Democrats) told journalists following a meeting with his Slovenian counterpart Aleš Hojs on Wednesday.

Hojs said that an estimated 14,000 people illegally crossed the Slovenian-Croatian border last year. Hamáček said they also discussed the upcoming Slovenian Presidency of the EU Council in the second half of 2021 and the coronavirus pandemic, among other topics.
