Croatia reopens all border crossings with Serbia

Zagreb, Sep 26 (IANS) Croatia reopened all border crossings with Serbia, a Croatian minister has said.

There was a change in the refugee route, Croatian Interior Minister Ranko Ostojic said, adding 300 refugees had crossed the border to Hungary at Horgos, Serbia.

The border crossings at Bajakovo and Tovarnik in Croatia were reopened after it closed to all Serbian-registered vehicles from Thursday, Xinhua news agency quoted the minister as saying on Friday.

However, Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic on Friday said Serbia did not open a corridor for refugees towards Hungary.

Serbia launched countermeasures halting the entry of Croatian commodities early Thursday following Croatia banning cargo traffic from Serbia in the only open border crossing between the two neighbours at Bajakovo.

In respond, Croatia restricted all vehicles with Serbian registration plates.

A total of 60,000 migrants have entered Croatia from Serbia since last week, after Hungary banned their entry by erecting a fence on its border with Serbia.
