MOSCOW, September 18. /TASS/. Serbia calls on the European Union, the United Nations and other international organization to solve the issue with migrants from the Middle East and North Africa as soon as possible, Serbian Ambassador to Russia Slavenko Terzic told TASS on Friday.
"EU should have a firm position on the migrant issue, it should find a solution to this issue," he stressed. "A total of 140,000 refugees have gone through Serbia over the last four months," Terzic noted.
If European countries close their borders, it "will complicate the issue with migrants even more," the diplomat said. "We are not going to close our borders," the ambassador assured. "Serbia is ready to cooperate with all countries to solve these problems. We call for the urgent solution of this issue together with EU countries, in the framework of UN and other international organizations." "European values should be showed in action," Terzic stressed.
Answering a TASS question on what to expect from the emergency meeting of justice ministers and defense ministers of the EU countries on September, the Serbian diplomat said: "A unanimous decision on migrants should be made at this summit." "It is absolutely clear that there should be no military solution of this problem," he stressed.
